               FEBRUARY NEWS & UPDATES

Join us for Soup + Ceramics + HHLove

All are invited to the 10th annual SOUP-er Bowl Fundraiser this Sunday, February 11 at Haley House Bakery Cafe (12 Dade Street, Roxbury)-- tickets are going fast, so get yours while they're still available (the first entrance at 2 pm is already sold out, but at the time of this newsletter, we've still got tickets for 3, 4 and 5 pm). 

At this popular annual event, guests begin by choosing a unique, handmade ceramic bowl created by our friends at Clay for Change at MassArt (yours to take home at the end!). You'll then be invited to enjoy more than 16 delicious soups made by talented chefs including our friends at Mei Mei, Future Chefs, Cuisine en Locale, The Food Project, Fresh Food Generation, Daily Table, Global Local Gourmet, Fulani's Kitchen, Paraclete Center, Paige Academy, and chefs from across Haley House Programs. Inventive and delicious soups are crafted using locally-grown ingredients donated from amazing farms and local businesses.

Listen & Learn: the Pats + TEP @ HHBC

On January 5th, staff and graduates of the TEP program at Haley House Bakery Cafe welcomed Devin McCourty, Johnson Bademosi, Brandin Cooks, and Matthew Slater of the Patriots, alongside criminal justice advocates from nearby universities, nonprofits, local government, and others fighting for criminal justice reform and racial equality. unnamed (2)
Starting at Harvard University and finishing at Haley House Bakery Cafe, the group participated in a panel discussion entitled "Racial Profiling and Barriers to Successful Reentry and Possible Solutions." The private round table event was co-hosted by the Fair Punishment Project and the Committee for Public Counsel Services. #FairPunishmentProject #PlayersCoalition  Click below to watch a overview of the day's activities.Patriots_HBCC 5

Handmade Soap for Our Guests! 

il_570xN.1400276006_i21pWe're so grateful for our friends at HAMMac Soap for their donation of handmade soups to our soup kitchen guests. 

With every bar of soap that they sell, one is donated. Click here for more information about this project. 

Thank You, City on a Hill Dudley Square

This month, members of the National Honor Society from our neighbors at City On a Hill Dudley Square hosted a "penny fundraiser" that raised $524.09 and students and staff collectively chose Haley House as their designated charity. We are so grateful! If you're interested in making a donation or organizing a drive of some kind, contact Rachel (here).

Want to Live at Haley House? 

Living and working at 23 Dartmouth Street (Haley House's home-base in the South End since 1967) offers a unique opportunity to experience intentional community living (5-7 people), self-growth, consensus-based decision making, contemplative discussion, interactions with new people each day, hard work, volunteer delegation, lots of cooking, and much joy along the way! 

Both short and long-term members of the "Live-In Community" help to collaboratively manage the soup kitchen (23 Dartmouth Street), which has the mission to serve nutritious, made-from-scratch meals and create an atmosphere where friendship and community is fostered across all societal boundaries. Room and board is included as part of the experience. Currently, the Live-in Community is reviewing applications for summer interns (short term stay) and full Live-in Community Members (two year stay).  Click on the links below for more information about this special experience:
