Early in the morning, before most people are up and out the door, the volunteers of the St. Mary's Soup Kitchen are hard at work. Thursday morning the soup of the day is split pea. Diane Day, director of the soup kitchen, and creator of all the soups, said a lot of people don't like today's choice, so she doesn't make it very often. Like it or not, it was on the menu that day and volunteers from across Fort Wayne were busy dipping, filling, topping and packing the soup. They were up against a 10 a.m. deadline, when the window of the soup kitchen opens for business.
