Can I bring soup?
No. We will have 6 VERY LARGE pots of home-made vegan/vegetarian soups. Plus a Chocolate Dessert Soup. Plenty for the whole crowd. We made 50 gallons of soup!
What can I bring?
You would be welcome to bring a side dish, dessert, appetizer, beer, or bottle of wine, soda, cookies…yes, we appreciate anything you bring… it is a lot of people to feed!
Where can I park?
Here are the legal places to park around the Neelyhouse, including Waverly Church.
Does it cost anything?
There is absolutely NO charge to attend the big Soup party and no one should feel required to make a donation via our big bowl. We would like to encourage everyone to consider the tremendous wealth that we all live in and give serious thought to making a donation to help those less fortunate.

Where do I put my donation to the Food Bank?
There will be a large vase on the main table to collect cash and checks made payable to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank (GPCFB). 100% of the money collected will be given to the Food Bank.
When should I arrive?
The party has a revolving crowd. Some people like to come early and leave early, others come late and stay late, and there is a soup fanatic crowd who arrive at the beginning and don’t leave until well after midnight. We love you all. This year we have decided to start a little earlier than years past, 6:00 PM.
