Spotlight on Open Source Soup Kitchen.
Dec 24, 2015
We are so grateful for our friends and family and this is the season we feel it the most. We also feel this way about our community and hear things every day that make us proud to live in Brooklyn. Though the month long event at Open Source Gallery is almost over we wanted to share it with everyone to spread the word about it. It warms our heart to hear about stuff like this. Read below for more info on this Park Slope organization’s December soup kitchen.
Each year the Open Source Soup Kitchen brings together artists, cooks, friends, and neighbors for a month of cooking, eating, sharing and celebrating!
For as many nights of the month as we have volunteers, we will provide the cookware and utensils–and our volunteer chef of the evening will be responsible to a “one-pot meal” (usually a soup or stew) that can feed approximately 15-20 people. We welcome all kinds of unique dishes from any ethnic tradition! The cook of the night is also responsible for incorporating an artistic element into the evening–it can be a one-night exhibit, musical performance, short play, or decoration of the gallery!
Attendees of the Soup Kitchen are neighbors, artists, people who are down on their luck, or some who are simply hungry. Sometimes the conversation flows easily, sometimes not, but the food is nearly always tasty (it’s New York, after all–we have standards!)
