Can you spare a little social change with that gourmet meal? For those of you who eat with a conscience, enjoy a meal a conversation at Hull-House’s “Free Soup and Organic Conversation.” This ongoing free event includes a meal and conversation with a leading food activist. Enjoy.
“Please bring your hunger for free soup and conversation every Tuesday. Hull-House Kitchen: Rethinking Soup is a communal event where we will eat delicious, healthy, soup and have fresh, organic conversation about many of the urgent social, cultural, economic and environmental food issues that we should be addressing. We will meet in the historic Residents’ Dining Hall, where Upton Sinclair, Ida B. Wells, W.E.B.Duboise, Gertrude Stein and other important social reformers met to share meals and ideas, debate one another and conspire to change the world. Activists, farmers, doctors, economists, artists, and guest chefs will join us each week to present their ideas and projects. In the tradition of the Hull-House Settlement’s commitment to free speech and Chicago’s Bug House Square, the third tuesday of every month will feature a “Soup Soap Box.” Anyone and everyone is invited to take the stage for 2 minutes each to share their projects, opinions, and visions for the future of food.
