Souper Bowl V
DUE TO THE FACT THAT PUBLIC TRANSIT WILL NOT BE RUNNING TOMORROW, THIS EVENT WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL 2/24. ALL TICKETS WILL BE HONORED ON THAT DATE.
Presented by MassArt's Clay for Change and Haley House Bakery Cafe
On Sunday February 10th, from 4-7PM at the Haley House Bakery Café in Roxbury's Dudley Square, chefs will serve soups made from locally sourced ingredients as a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End.
Admission will occur at 15-minute intervals. Please note the time that you are registering for.
Upon entering, attendees will select a handcrafted ceramic bowl, courtesy of MassArt's Clay for Change program. They will then make their way from station to station, sampling the soups produced with locally sourced ingredients in the middle of February. In sampling a variety of these soups, people realize that eating locally doesn't just have to be a summer/fall phenomenon - with a little creativity, folks can eat locally all year round. At the end of the event, the attendees are invited to take their bowls home with them.
Four years ago, the Boston Localvores approached the Haley House Bakery Café with the concept of the first Souper Bowl, an event highlighting locally sourced soups. Two years ago, MassArt's Clay for Change program joined our newly reinvented Souper Bowl, now a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End.
Chefs for this event make a concerted effort to challenge perceptions about eating locally in mid-Winter. Diverse soups featured in Souper Bowl IV included:
Butternut Squash and Apple Soup/Cream of Carrot Soup/French Onion Soup/Kambocha Mash Soup/Kale Soup/Pea Tendril Soup/Pork & Bean Soup/Root Vegetable Lentil Soup/Scotch Broth/Seafood Chowder/Sweet & Spicy Parsnip Soup
Ingredients in Souper Bowl IV soups were sourced from Haley House's own Noonday Farm (Winchendon, MA), Robinson Cheese Farm (Hardwick, MA), The Food Project (Dorchester, MA), North Star Farm (Westport, MA), Sherman's Market (Somerville, MA), Stillman Farm, (Lunenberg, MA), Stillman at the Turkey Farm (Hardwick, MA), Winter Moon Farm (Hadley, MA), Mayflower Poultry (Cambridge, MA), Vermont Quality Meats (Rutland, VT), Four Star Farms (Northfield, MA), and Cape Ann Fresh Catch (Gloucester, MA). Iggy's Breads generously donates bread for this occasion.
With a focus on reciprocal learning, Haley House Meals Program offers wholesome nourishment to mind, body and spirit in Boston's oldest soup kitchen, situated in the South End neighborhood. More than simply serving food, the Meals Program is intent on building community and relationships at six breakfasts and three elder meals per week. It serves home-cooked, nutritious meals as a way to create a space of refuge from the violence and anonymity of the streets. There are no metal detectors or law enforcement officers present. The personalist focus of the Meals Programs offers a broader perspective on the systems that create hunger and poverty, while working to create alternatives to those systems. The funds raised in Souper Bowl V will provide one month of food to be served in the soup kitchen.
Clay for Change is a student activity group at Massachusetts College of Art, and "Empty Bowls" is one of its primary initiatives. With "Empty Bowls," the students make bowls to raise money for those who are in need of food. Their goal is to help Mass Art to make strong connections with communities that need help.
