Encouraging Hands-On Social Action
Soup-er Sunday is one of JTI’s largest service learning programs. It takes place around Mitzvah Day International, an international day of service encouraging people all over the world to take part in hands-on social action in November.
Here on the North Shore, 100+ youth, teen and adult volunteers prepare and cook various foods, and then deliver the food to local emergency and family shelters as a pre-Thanksgiving meal. Each year we look for soup-er heroes to help with cooking, set up, clean up and/or delivering food and the day begins with pizza for lunch. Guest chefs are always on hand for culinary inspiration and instruction; no cooking expertise is required!
Thanks to all our SOUP-ER 2018 participants, sponsors and collaborators on another HUGE success!
