FORT STOCKTON - The Fort Stockton Food Pantry is working to raise funds for a new soup kitchen.

"Si Se Puede Con Cristo" or "Yes We Can With Christ" is trying to raise funds for commercial appliances like a steam table or even have items donated.

With the number of homeless in the area, the kitchen expects to feed up to 30 people a day.

In order to raise funds for the kitchen, organizers are preparing a fundraiser.

The fundraiser will feature comedian Johnny Gonzales.

He will perform at the Pecos County Civic Center on March 16.

For tickets or to find out where to donate to the Soup Kitchen, contact Juan Rios at 394-4911.
