Chicken Soup Project helps community members in need

The community is invited to spend the evening making chicken soup for community members in need on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m., at YWCA Greenwich, 259 E. Putnam Avenue.

The Chicken Soup Project is initiated by the Women’s Philanthropy wing of UJA Greenwich and provides “free soup to Greenwichites when they’re sick or bereaved or recovering from surgery,” said UJA/JCC assistant director Leah Schechter. Gallons will also go to the Kosher Food Pantry of Jewish Family Service of Stamford, just in time for Thanksgiving.

While the broth is simmering, participants will share a light nosh and take in food for thought provided by author Jessica Fechtor and her bestselling memoir, Stir, My Broken Brain and The Meals That Brought Me Home. Winner of a Living Now Book Award, Stir traces Fechtor’s poignant and inspiring story of recovery — with the help of cooking — from a near-fatal brain aneurysm.

“The event brings together women in a hands-on community service project to nourish and heal others while also finding nourishment for their soul,” added Schechter. “Everyone is welcome to participate in The Chicken Soup Project!”

For tickets, at $30 in advance and $40 at the door, register at or 203-552-1818.
