  • Description

    Food kitchen for all. Location of events unknown.

    Social services; soup kitchens. Women at a Food Kitchen for All in 1918. Opens with shot of the women workers at the kitchen: they pose holding pans and plates; standing by a chalkboard with menu items starting with pea soup and fried fish. Shot of women going into building; carrying baskets or bags; a few children with them.

    Shot of the women coming out again with their baskets; some of them also balance tea cups. A couple women standing by fence with cups and saucers; chatting. Funny shot of a young woman holding a plate with cake or something on it; she is having a food fight with someone off-screen! She sticks her finger in the food and pokes it at her victim; who counters with a quick reprisal in kind; the woman falls about in uncontrollable laughter! Silly and endearing. Economic & social conditions.
