Here is one of those feel-good holiday stories that will remind you there is still some good left in this world: St. Dominic’s Soup Kitchen in Weehawken, NJ is making its soup extra good for the holiday season.
Wow! Truly inspiring.
“We know the holidays can be especially difficult for a lot of the people we serve, so we wanted to give them something special this year,” said Barbara Van Ness, director of the soup kitchen. “So, we decided to make sure all our soups—vegetable, chicken noodle, and tomato—are extra good this year. We’re using extra-good ingredients and working hard to make sure that every soup is extra tasty. Given the season, this just seemed like the right thing to do.”
Simply incredible. In addition to the spices, the kitchen is also adding a little bit of parsley on top for garnish. Let’s just hope they’re making enough, because people are definitely going to want seconds!
“We’re using parsley this year, so that’s going to be nice,” said volunteer Paul Mis. “It’s going to be on top of every bowl of soup.”
Talk about going above and beyond. It’s clear that this soup kitchen knows what the holidays are all about. The homeless community in the Weehawken area are certainly in for a bowl of soup they won’t soon forget—we just wish we could try some!
Faith in humanity restored!
