Soup for the Soul

The North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council (NLCCC) GReening Open space Water Soil Sustainability (GROWSS) committee is dedicated to improving the gardens and public land of North Lawndale, including supporting our community during the COVID pandemic. The Historic Stone Temple Church is dedicated to building people through teaching and training. 

During COVID, we have distributed 300 boxes each week from Urban Growers Collective  and Gourmet Gorilla  to distribute to residences in  the North Lawndale community. They are no longer able to provide us enough boxes to meet the needs of the community, which is why we need your help.

Please help families in North Lawndale by supporting the NLCCC GROWSS committee and Stone Temple 'Soup for the Soul' distribution. 

We will provide 200 - 16oz portions of hot soup each Monday from 2-4pm at Stone Temple Church through March 31, 2021. 

Each week's provision costs $700. All donations will used to hire a local minority chef, purchase ingredients from a local food justice organization, and buy containers. Volunteers will distribute soup. 

Thank you for being a partner in sharing 'Soup for the Soul' for the North Lawndale community.
