  • CHOP Construction Update: We will have side walk closures at the SE and NE corners of the Schuylkill Ave and Bainbridge St intersection from Monday, 10/31,  through Wednesday, 11/23. The work will be phased so that only partial closures will be necessary and pedestrian traffic will be maintained. This work is being performed to install new sidewalk and curbs.

What’s a Soup Group?
A collection of folks who take turns making a big batch of soup for the group to share.

Why join a SOSNA Soup Group?
  • Lots of homemade soup with minimal effort and chance to taste new recipes!
  • Opportunity to meet and get to know your neighbors!

How does a Soup Group work?
Typically, about a 5 to 7 person Soup Group will rotate with one person making a big pot of homemade soup on a weekly basis. The other group members come to pick up their share at set time. Everyone gets a homemade soup for their household each week, but only has to cook once every 5-7 weeks. Group members often chat and trade recipes during the weekly pick up. SOSNA will facilitate convening the groups, and then you can decide what works best for your group in terms of frequency, batch size, pick up times...
