Soup Kitchen Wednesdays At Hideout This Winter

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Jan 5, 2009 8:21PM

2009_01_soup_line.jpg Starting this Wednesday and running through April Fool's Day, Hideout will be transformed into a soup line with a weekly dinner featuring three soups fashioned by Hideout staff, regulars, local chefs and maybe even a food writer/blogger or three.

The "Soup and Bread" concept was conceived and is being shepherded by former Reader staffer Martha Bayne, who holds down the early Wednesday shift at Hideout. Her initial call for cooking volunteers filled so quickly that she's now working on the February schedule (no soup will be served on 2/11). All soup served is free, but a hat will be passed among diners, with the collections going to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Bayne has also set up a blog so interested folks can keep updated on schedules and who's cooking in upcoming weeks.
