HUNTS POINT - A group of volunteers is building a former church hall in Hunts Point into a soup kitchen.

The New York Food Bank says the renovation at Bright Temple Church will bring a neighborhood its first soup kitchen.

The work includes installing a new kitchen, hardwood floors and new paint in the 1,200-square-foot space.

Officials say the soup kitchen will be able to serve 1,000 families a week.

The volunteers say they hope to have the job finished by Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
