A soup kitchen in Michigan will not be serving a free Thanksgiving dinner because of a lack of money, officials said.
"This is the first time in our eight-year history that God's Kitchen of Michigan has canceled a holiday event," Rev. William Stein, co-founder and chairman of the kitchen, said in a statement.
God's Kitchen officials said the Kalamazoo location will temporarily close after Wednesday night's dinner until it can raise more money to resume operations, WOOD-TV reported.
The Thanksgiving dinner was scheduled for Nov. 27, MLive reported. Officials said lack of money threatens the status of the free Christmas dinner Dec. 18 at the soup kitchen, MLive reported.
