An Ottumwa soup kitchen has found another way to bring in financial support.

Top Hat Coffee is officially open for business this week, and part of that business will support Blessings Soup Kitchen.

The soup kitchen serves close to 200 people a day.

Right now, the plan is to open the coffee shop's downstairs meeting room and commercial kitchen for people to rent by donation.

The kitchen and meeting room can be rented for showers, birthdays or even class reunions. 100 percent of the proceeds will be filtered back into the soup kitchen.
