Each year the Open Source Soup Kitchen brings together artists, cooks, friends, and neighbors for a month of cooking, eating, sharing and celebrating!

For as many nights of the month as we have volunteers, we will provide the cookware and utensils–and our volunteer chef of the evening will be responsible to a “one-pot meal” (usually a soup or stew) that can feed approximately 15-20 people. All meals are served between 7:00-9:00pm. We welcome all kinds of unique dishes from any ethnic tradition! The cook of the night is also responsible for incorporating an artistic element into the evening–it can be a one-night exhibit, musical performance, short play, or decoration of the gallery!

Attendees of the Soup Kitchen are neighbors, artists, people who are down on their luck, or some who are simply hungry. Sometimes the conversation flows easily, sometimes not, but the food is nearly always tasty (it’s New York, after all–we have standards!) Join us for good food, good art, and good conversation–and bring your friends, family, and neighbors!

This is a free event. If you would like to be a guest, stop by Open Source any night in December between 7:00pm and 9:00pm!

This year, artist Andrew Snyder has generously donated bowls to the Soup Kitchen. At the end of the night, all attendees will be able to take home the bowl they ate out of.

This year’s Soup Kitchen is dedicated to Tony Kalangis.

For the last several years, Tony was an important and warm presence at the Soup Kitchen. He was there most every night in December, helping the Open Source staff and volunteers to clean and serve, greeting guests, telling stories and making everyone feel at home. Tony was responsible for an incredible amount of outreach to local shelters and soup kitchens, which broadened our audience and created an amazing diversity of guests every night, helping all of us to broaden our worldviews.

Tony passed away this year and will be greatly missed. In his memory, we will be collecting donations at the Soup Kitchen to support Neighbors Together, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty in Ocean Hill, Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant, three of the lowest-income areas in New York City. Donate in person at the fundraiser or online here!
