Warwick. Soup for the community and its soul

| 22 Jan 2021 | 01:28

Members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and members of the Warwick local community have joined together in making their favorite soups and sharing them with the community via a drive-through pick up.

Tagged as “Soup for the Soul,” the service is aimed to bring a little relief during these stress-filled days.

“People are stressed,” coordinator Barbara Katz said. “We just wanted a way to provide a little personal relief.”

So, in consideration, the plan to provide some “stress relief” was hatched.

“We wanted to do something that would offer a little respite, demonstrate that we care about our neighbors and provide a reason to smile” even if just for one evening, said Debi Giuliani.

The selection of soup for any particular Wednesday evening is simply dependent on what favorite recipe the volunteers feel like making. Containers of 16 oz. and 32 oz. are available and you make your selection from the soup listings posted on the giant white board outside as you drive up to the serving area.

Last week’s selection included vegetarian chili, beef barley, chicken noodle, cream of vegetable, beef stew and onion soup.

Quantity is limited to first-come, first-served.

Soup amount may also vary, but in the last two weeks there was enough soup for 100 servings.

In Galatians 5:13 are these thoughts: “Serve one another through love.”

Soup is available at no charge to members of the community between 3 and 6 p.m. every Wednesday.

Reservations are not required, simply drive up, make a selection, receive your soup, relax and enjoy.

Delivery is available for those who are homebound. For questions or to arrange for delivery contact the church office between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at 845 986-3040.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is located at 95 Kings Highway, Warwick.
