The 24-Hour Soup Kitchen: Soul-Stirring Lessons in Gastrophilanthropy

The 24-Hour Soup Kitchen: Soul-Stirring Lessons in Gastrophilanthropy

by Stephen Henderson


Available for Pre-Order. This item will be available on March 10, 2020


While traveling for a magazine assignment in India, Stephen Henderson learned of 24-hour soup kitchens operated by Sikh houses of worship (or gurdwaras). After working for a week as a volunteer cook at the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi, which feeds 20,000 men, women, and children every single day, Henderson became curious about the different ways poor people get fed around the world.
He describes a fascinating series of culinary adventures, during which Henderson spent time laboring alongside many gastrophilanthropists, or chefs who make feeding the needy their form of charity. Part memoir, and part how-to guide, Henderson’s field reports from across the globe show how much joy a good meal will give to a homeless and hungry person.
Written with both humor and compassion, the experiences described in this book will inspire anyone who would like to fight poverty in some tangible way, but are not sure where to begin.
