On Tuesday, March 7th, a group of well known chefs came together to support work with the immigrant community by selling soup. Led by Bruce Sherman of North Pond, the chefs produced and sold soup at four locations across the city and in Evanston. Each person who placed an order received two pints of soup along with the good feeling that comes with knowing they were helping out people with immigration issues.
The Southwest Organizing Project (SWOP), along with Centro Romero and the Immigrant Workers’ Project, were the three organizations selected to receive the proceeds from the sale of the soup. SWOP will use the funding to support citizenship workshops, Know Your Rights trainings, and other activities aimed at supporting the immigrant community.
SWOP greatly appreciates the support of Solidarity Soup and the leadership of Bruce Sherman in undertaking this effort.
