Docu­men­tary about a soup kitchen in an under­priv­i­leged district in North Philadel­phia. Here, despite a dire lack of means, three inspiring women fend for the poor and home­less in their community.
North Philadel­phia is weighed down under poverty and drug-related prob­lems. Armed violence and police intim­i­da­tion are everyday phenomena. This does not impede the deter­mined protag­o­nists of this docu­men­tary. Black Panther Barbara Easley-Cox, pastor Renee Mackenzie and chef Mamie Mather fight side by side for social justice in their neigh­bour­hood. In the soup kitchen of the Afro-Amer­ican Church of the Advo­cate, these three inspiring women fight for the poor and home­less. Every­body is welcome at their table.
