Soup & Bread Is Back At The Hideout


BUCKTOWN — A weekly fundraiser for local anti-hunger organizations is returning to The Hideout this week.
Soup & Bread, a weekly community meal, will take place from 5:30-8 p.m. Wednesdays beginning this week and ending April 1.
The cost of the meal is based on a pay-what-you-can donation. Over the last 11 years, Soup & Bread dinners have raised more than $90,000 for local hunger relief organizations.
“We are aiming to crack the six-figure mark this year,” organizer Martha Bayne said in an email. “We are confident we can do it!”
This week’s food pantry partner that will receive door donations is Ravenswood Community Services.
Located at 1354 W. Wabansia Ave., The Hideout has free street parking.
Soup & Bread meals are prepared by a pre-scheduled group of chefs and amateur cooking enthusiasts. Bread is donated by Publican Quality Bread.
This week’s soup chefs are Cyndi Fecher, John McKevitt, Danica Kempe, Jamie Gentry, Kelly Hewitt, Cinnamon Cooper and Erin Drain. Local Foods will also provide a soup.
To get on the chef list for a future Soup & Bread, email Martha Bayne at soupnbread10@gmail.com.
