Soup & Bread
So Soup & Bread 2018 is on. It kicks off January 3rd at 5:30 pm at the Hideout, and runs every Wednesday through March 28th. Come, bring your kids, bring your appetites, and bring your dollars. As ever all your pay-what-you-can-donations will go to help local food pantries.
This year, we’ve decided to ditch the weekly soup themes in favor of one simple idea: sanctuary. As most of you probably know, Chicago is a “sanctuary city” – and as such is threatened with losing federal funding under a Trump administration. With Chicago’s social services already starved by the state budget impasse, things may be about to get much worse.
So, in that context we’re asking soup cooks to bring soups that celebrate Chicago’s immigrant heritage – either your own or someone else’s. Bring on the pozole, the borscht, the harrira; the shorbit amas and the soupe joumou. We’ll be collecting recipes again and if we get enough we’ll try and put together another cookbook.
