ITW Foundation Helps St. Pat's Soup Kitchen Build New Facility
Troy, Ohio November 28, 2012  The St. Pat's Soup Kitchen today announced a major step toward better serving the needs of the local community with relocation and expansion of a new soup kitchen  The new site at 24 N. Mulberry Street has received final zoning approval from the City of Troy.  The building will be called the Hobart Community Kitchen and is supported by a generous partnership grant from the ITW Foundation.  The ITW Foundation is the charitable branch of the ITW / Hobart Corporation located in Troy, Ohio.  The new kitchen is also supported by grants from the Troy Foundation and the United Way of Troy.
The 3,500-square foot building will more than double the kitchen's current capacity, increasing the number of people served to 120. The current site is not handicap accessible and facility limitations only allow the staff to serve 60 people at a time. The new facility will increase capacity, meal preparation efficiency, and be handicap accessible.  As a leader in industrial food equipment, the ITW Food Equipment business in Troy is uniquely suited to partner with the St. Patrick Soup Kitchen on this project.
“We are excited for the opportunities we will have, and all the people we can help at the new location,” said Greg Taylor, St Pat's Soup Kitchen Board member. “The new kitchen, made possible by our partnership with the ITW Foundation, equips us to meet the needs of the hungry in our community today and for generations to come.  The new building will be an amazing resource for the entire community."
Dick Steineman, Director of the St. Pat's Soup Kitchen expressed his appreciation to the community.  "Our ministry has been blessed by the generosity of this community for over 16 years," said Mr. Steineman.  "The  grants will provide for a new building and new equipment.  But it is the community's generosity that provides the day to day operations and the ability to purchase food to feed the hungry in Troy. To learn more about the new facility and how you can help visit our website www.soupkitchen.org."
Mr. Steineman also notes that the existing kitchen will remain open until the new Hobart Community Kitchen is completed.  Construction is scheduled to begin immediately and be completed in the Spring of 2013.  The new kitchen, built by Harlow Builders of Troy, Ohio, will be inspired by the historic architecture of Troy.  The plans will be reviewed by the City of Troy and the Historic District to ensure it complements the neighborhood.
The Hobart Community Kitchen is part of a five-year strategic funding plan to fight hunger in the greater Troy community. The ITW Foundation, the charitable branch of ITW, provides support through both direct giving and a matching gift program, encouraging employee participation for far-reaching and locally relevant impact. ITW’s operations in the Troy area include Hobart, and Hobart Brothers.
“One of the goals of the ITW Foundation is to make a positive difference in the communities
where our employees live, work and raise their families,” said Chris O'Herlihy, Executive Vice
President for ITW. “We’re proud to support the important work of the St. Patrick Soup Kitchen
