Soup's On '22

Friends, it's cold here in West Michigan and we at Bates Place are excited to be doing our "Soup's On" fundraiser again Thursdays in February.  Each Thursday in February our team will be gathering to craft a tasty and satisfying homemade soup that will be available to anyone interested in good food and supporting the work of Bates Place Neighbors.  For a suggested donation of $25 you get four hearty portions of soup and homemade bread.  We also encourage you to consider paying it forward and blessing a neighbor in our area with an order of soup.  What's better than building community by sharing a hot meal!
