ROOSEVELT - The Faith Mission soup kitchen is moving from the First United Methodist Church in Roosevelt after being evicted because of the church?s financial troubles.
The all-volunteer soup kitchen moved into First United Methodist Church in 2010. This past weekend the locks were changed, and the soup kitchen was unable to open this morning as planned.
The soup kitchen is moving into the Salvation Army on Terrace Avenue in Hempstead and is expected to open in June. The Salvation Army has offered to house the Faith Mission free of charge.
