Martha Bayne, author of the Soup and Bread Cookbook and a former staff member of the Chicago Reader, speaks Sunday, September 21st, on “Building Community—One Soup Pot at a Time.” Bayne will examine the classic model of a soup kitchen and how soup has become a political tool for both strengthening the community and fostering social justice.
