If it’s true that a full belly makes for a happy soul, Rachael Ray has put smiles on enough souls to fill a good part of heaven, thanks to her good deed for the city of Cincinnati.

The TV cooking-show and award-winning talk-show host and walking name brand unveiled a makeover for a soup kitchen in the struggling city, with help from native Nick Lachey on Saturday.

“This town has been devastated,” Ray said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “We want to do something for them that will last much longer than one meal, one day.”
