“Soups on Us” will warm up next winter

SoupsonusSoups On Us kicks off its fourth season on October 22, 2015

A Free Community Lunch opens its doors again this Fall in Downtown Port Perry at Church of the Ascension.  A weekly, drop-in lunch for the entire community, “Soups on Us” is organized by a local Parents’ Support Group and five area churches. Volunteers from the churches and special needs adults will once again serve up delicious homemade soup, bread and dessert every Thursday at the Church of the Ascension hall, at 266 North St., Port Perry, from 11:30am to 1:00pm.

The lunch, a drop-in affair, will be offered free of charge. Those who wish to make a donation may do so.

Kathy Payne-Mercer, leader of the Parents support group shares that “Soups shows the true meaning of the word community. For everyone involved in the preparing, serving and eating of the food they become  part of their town and life in it”.

The participating churches include Emmanuel Community Church, Hope Christian Reform Church, New Song Church, Port Perry United Church and Church of the Ascension.

“I know all the five churches are really thrilled to offer such a concrete gift to the community, but also to create a partnership in the kitchen with our new friends,” says Cathy Cooper, a “Soups on Us” representative from Church of the Ascension.” ‘Soups on Us’ will be a warm and welcoming place to enjoy a quick, complementary lunch, and to support some hard workers in the kitchen. We look forward to another season of great food, camaraderie, and community service.”
