Are you a furloughed employee? Do you want to help feed the furloughed employees?
Here is the good news:
La Soupe has teamed up with Cincinnati State to produce a 2-day pop up. We plan to feed 1,500 people each day at The Summit at Cincinnati State. The Summit will be open for carry out meals on Wednesday, January 23rd and Thursday, January 24th starting at 2:00pm. The dining room will be open for dining-in from 5:00 - 8:00pm. So please, spread the word to all of your federal employee friends to make sure they are aware they can pick up some delicious food!
If you would like to volunteer to prepare, package, or serve during the pop up, please click on the link below. You will be required to provide your name, email address, and phone number. The shifts are 4 hours in length. There are more details on the SignUpGenius site. THANK YOU!
Many members of team La Soupe walked through 915 East McMillan last week. We met with the Drawing Department today to finalize the floor plan. We have put so many hours of thought into the build-out of this most awesome space and we plan to keep you, our valued supporters, up to date here! Here are a few photos from the outside front, the back of the building, and the inside. We all love the space!!!
