Businesses, volunteers come together to build soup line to the soup kitchen

Warm Soup for Warm Hearts event forms human chain of soup through downtown Sudbury

Staff and owners from local businesses came together in downtown Sudbury on Dec. 10 to make a unique delivery to the Blue Door Soup Kitchen.

More than 100 volunteers formed a human chain from Zaher's Small Batch on Elgin Street to the Cedar Nest Décor Café on Cedar Street, down Durham street and back along Elgin to the soup kitchen.

The idea for the human chain came from Cedar Nest owner Sue Peters and Zaher's Small Batch owner Deke Zaher.

It took off. Joining in to help form the human chain of soup were students and staff from Marymount Academy, as well as staff from several downtown businesses, including Respect Is Burning, Peppi Panini's and Peddler's Pub.

Besides the soup, participants were also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Sudbury Food Bank.
