Soup Fest

EACH YEAR, DURING THE SHARE LENT CAMPAIGN we hold Soup Fest. It didn't start out that way. It started as a simpler seder meal, but because of the enthusiasm of our soup makers, it blossomed into something bigger.

Each year our donating soup makers create meatless soups, sold on a per bowl basis. Here's a list of some of the varieties:

  • Four Mushroom
  • Cream of Cauliflower
  • Spicy Tomato
  • Cream of Potato
  • Minestrone
  • Stracciatella
  • Potato Leek
  • Vegetable
  • Lentil
  • Cream of Asparagus
