COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Copper thieves have struck a major soup kitchen in Columbus, forcing it to stop feeding the needy.

The Holy Family Community Kitchen and Pantry says two large
refrigeration compressors were unbolted from their concrete pads and
taken away over Memorial Day weekend, and the thieves also stole copper

Director Frances Carr says the soup kitchen couldn't
keep the food cold, so it spoiled and had to be thrown out. Carr says
that was tough to do at a time when so many people are in need.

By Wednesday, the facility had to shut down.

Carr hopes to reopen Monday but isn't certain that will be possible.

The news isn't just that they robbed a soup kitchen is Columbus, Ohio, rather There Are Soup Kitchens in Columbus, Ohio!
