SOUPER HEROES HELP!

Souper Heroes is a street-level outreach program serving freshly prepared nutritious food to the homeless.


Supported by community volunteers making and serving the soup, we provide 5-gallons of hot, home-cooked soup to over 50 homeless individuals each night at Chicago train stations. Soup is served 2 - 3 nights per week. 


Over 10,000 bowls served and counting!

WE CAN ALL BE SOUPER HEROES!

By rallying neighbors throughout the communities of Chicago via social media, Ken has a created a small army of dedicated soup-makers and serving volunteers committing their time and efforts to this important cause every week.


During the winter months, Souper Heroes also strives to help meet the other needs of the homeless and is currently accepting donations of blankets, coats, hats, socks and gloves. Any donation of these winter items may be arranged through an email with Ken at ken@souperheroeschi.org.
