soup's on for all fundraiser
If you’re a fan of the television show Seinfeld, you’ve probably heard of mulligatawny soup, but have you ever tried it?
Attendees at the annual Soup’s On For All fundraiser, held on Monday, Jan. 30, sampled that hearty soup and more, all to benefit a great cause. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan was one of many sponsors of the event.
Local restaurants brought their best soups for guests to try, as they slurped and sipped through all levels of the B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids. Live music and entertainment, along with breads and desserts rounded out the evening’s attractions.
Ticket sales benefit the food and pantry programs of God’s Kitchen, part of Catholic Charities of West Michigan. Annually, the event raises more than $100,000.

We asked God’s Kitchen chefs Andrew Kieras and Colleen Vorel to share their mulligatawny recipe and they also offered up a German lentil soup you can make at home.
If you like the result, or if you’re moved by the mission of the Soup’s On For All event, consider a donation to the cause.
