Hankering for some nice warm soup on a chilly autumn morning?

Get over to the Event Court in the St. Catharines’ Pen Centre this morning (Oct. 18) between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to enjoy samples of gourmet soups prepared by Niagara’s finest chefs.

Bethlehem Housing and Support Services (BHSS) will be hosting the 1st Annual Country Harvest Soup Fest fundraiser fueled by Empty Bowls to help people and their families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless due to issues with poverty, physical disability, mental health, domestic violence, and family breakdown.

“During this lunchtime event, guests will enjoy samples of gourmet soups prepared by Niagara’s finest chefs and fresh artisan breads to complement this culinary experience,” says BHSS.

The BHSS said this event is a companion to their Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser in March and does not replace it but is rather an opportunity to attend a similar event during the day and in the Fall.

“Our programs and services are solutions-focused to break the cycle of homelessness and help our families across the Niagara region, gain the confidence, skills, and health to remain securely housed,” they added.
