"In 1984, Helen Ashe first dreamed of creating a program to serve the needy of Knoxville. One day as she was watching television she saw a soup line operated by the Church Street United Methodist Church and she knew then what her mission was to be. Her twin sister, Ellen, quickly shared in her excitement and joined in her new quest. The sisters, born in Abbeville, South Carolina, feel that the concept of The Love Kitchen has always been with them in the ideals instilled by their parents. Ellen and Helen are very thankful for the teachings of their parents and will always remember the three ""truths"" their father taught them:
* 1. Never take the last piece of bread. Someone may come by in need of it.
* 2. There is only one race, the human race.
* 3. There is only one Father and that is the Father in Heaven."
