For those of you who are looking for a cheap, tasty treat before the Harvest launch, chefs from the Sofitel, Vue de Monde, and the European will be serving up gourmet soups at Federation Square to raise money for soup kitchens around Melbourne.
Just $2 will buy you a cup of soup straight from the city’s five-star restaurants at a soup kitchen with a difference…The soup sale will raise cash for Leader Community Newspapers’ Feed Melbourne campaign, which aims to raise $1 million to equip charities with vans, fridges and freezers to increase their capacity to store and deliver donated food to those in need. (Progress Leader, 18 August 2009, p. 8.)
Two dollars is not a lot, so BUY THE SOUP, DAMNIT, AND BUY A COPY OF HARVEST WHILE YOU’RE AT IT.
