This is a primary source picture showing how there were soup kitchens during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Soup Kitchens were places where meals were given out to the poor for free because people could not afford to pay for food due to the stock market crash, homelessness, and unemployment. Soup Kitchens helped feed people through the Great Depression and helped them to survive. This is credible because it was known to be a common thing to go to the Soup Kitchen for a meal in the 1930s.
