For the past 9 years, CQL has been proud to be a Gold Sponsor supporter of Catholic Charities in helping them accomplish their mission of helping individuals and families that come to God’s Kitchen looking for care and food assistance.
Their food and pantry programs provide vital services such as food delivered to the homebound, drop in lunch and dinner sites, food pantries, and meal outreach in many communities.
The annual Soup’s On event is definitely a staff favorite for us. For years, our employees, and their significant others, have attended this event, which features various local restaurants serving soup as a way to demonstrate ‘soup lines’ from years past. It is a special evening.
Personally, I love picking a custom made soup bowl to take home. Hundreds of volunteers, including schools, church groups, aspiring artists, etc. hand paint bowls that are given away to attendees at the event. Picking just the right one is an art form all in itself as I have a display in my home that reminds me all year of the great work Catholic Charities is doing.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s event and hope to see you there!
