Soup Soap Hugs Hope: The Story of Brother Benno’s Life-Changing Soup Kitchen

As part of the 20th Anniversary celebration of Brother Benno’s in 2003, co-founder Harold Kutler wrote a book about the ministry, with the help of volunteer Barbara Ladwig. The book is titled Soup Soap Hugs Hope: The Story of Brother Benno’s Life-Changing Soup Kitchen.

It includes the history of Brother Benno’s, stories of the key people who have been involved over the years, information about the many services offered, stories of guests whose lives have been changed by the miracle of love, ways to get involved, and much more.
The book is available for a donation in any amount. Send your request to the Brother Benno Foundation, 3260 Production Avenue, Oceanside, CA 92058, and mark the envelope “BOOK”.
