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!
