Capone didn’t invent it, but he was one of the first to open a soup kitchen to feed the poor during
the Depression. At a time of 25 percent unemployment, Capone's kitchens
served three meals a day to ensure that everyone who had lost a job could
get a meal. Soon, every city and town had a soup kitchen.

Capone did not only open them, but he would go to the soup kitchens and help
serve the meals. These soup kitchens cost Capone thousands of dollars every
day to keep running. It is said that Capone had a soft spot for people who
were struggling.
