What's better than a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter's day? How about a free bowl of soup on a cold winter's day?
Bruegger's bakeries in Connecticut are are making it "Free Soup Day" Thursday. It's all being done for a good cause. Bruegger's is asking customers to help raise funds for Foodshare, the regional food bank for Hartford and Tolland counties.
Anyone can get a free bowl of soup from noon to 2 p.m., and you will find collection canisters at the registers to make a donation to Foodshare.
The Vermont-based bakery has a history of supporting food banks. Foodshare serves about 128,000 people in 42 cities and towns. Those areas have seen a 30% increase in people needing assistance over the past two years.
No word yet which soups will be featured tomorrow, but you can check out the soup schedule for the restaurant near you on the Bruegger's website.
