Soup & Bread Returns to the Hideout

IMG_2266Here it is friends. The answer to the question you (or at least a few of you) have been asking: Soup & Bread is returning to the Hideout for once a month meals starting January 25. Soup & Bread is at its core a tool for building community, an open table around which all can gather, and a vehicle for redistributing wealth. It is my sincere hope that this winter it can also provide a little good medicine toward healing the pain the Hideout community has been grappling with of late. Let’s come together and eat together, and continue to work for justice.
The January 25 meal runs from 6-8 pm and includes soups from Ethan Fischer, Bonnie Tawse, Won Kim, Jeanette Olson, and Sauce & Bread Kitchen. Bread is generously donated by Crumb Bread, Publican Quality Bread, and Middlebrow. In a change from previous years, we’re asking guests to RSVP — for free — in order to get a sense of attendance; donations will be taken on site. As ever, children are welcome at Soup & Bread with parent or guardian. Lastly: we are still looking for a few more cooks for this month’s event, as well as events on February 22 and March 29. If you are interested in cooking for Soup & Bread please let us know!

Pay-what-you-can donations this month benefit the Woodlawn-based mutual aid project Market Box. Here’s a little bit more about Market Box, in their own words:

Begun in Spring 2020 as an emergency pandemic response, Market Box crowd-funds to bulk-buy produce from across the midwest, and distributes over 420 bags of food each month to our network of families on the South Side. Our twice-monthly, volunteer-led distribution days are based at First Presbyterian Church in Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood. Together, we seek to build a local food system rooted in mutuality and community care. Our next distribution day is Saturday, 1/28! Sign up to volunteer at, or donate at
