FREE Soup For A Donation, Courtesy of the Soup Lady
Though not the only one ladling things out of a stockpot these days, the woman known as the “Soup Lady” has probably embraced the temperament of the times more than other ambulant vendors given that she actually gives away the stuff for free.
The back story is winding, but it would seem the the Soup Lady’s journey was born out of the disaster of Hurricane Charley. Regardless, somehow that led her to San Francisco with idea to push around steaming pots of soup for the wayward and inebriated at night. As Celeste says in Soapdish, “..it’s so warming.”
Though technically free, apparently she lives off donations and this vocation to warm the bellies of lower Missionites is only thing she’s got going, soyou might want to drop some tuppence in her coffers. To narrow down her whereabouts, check in here.
