Soup kitchen finds itself homeless

WOONSOCKET — One by one, they file past the chow line to pick up a ham sandwich and some soup served up in paper plates and Styrofoam cups. Many vanish after picking up the free meal, while others enjoy a seat at one of the picnic tables under the gazebo at nearby Veterans Memorial Park.
But it's no picnic for Suzanne Billington. It may be her only meal of the day.
“I'm homeless,” she says. “I actually live in a tent in the woods.”
She's not the only one. The organization that provides this basic relief to some of the city's most destitute citizens is on the street, too. Literally.
