A fantastic crowd of more than 120 people joined us on November 26th at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall for Soup Ottawa’s 7th event. Scratch Kitchen served up an amazing butternut squash coconut curry soup, as well as a warming beef chili, perfect for a cold night! Thank you to Bridgehead and the Wild Oat Bakery for providing the delicious bread.
The winner, as voted by the crowd, was the “Ottawa Tool Library”, who took home more than $1300. They plan on opening a space where people can borrow tools for DIY projects. Congratulations to such a wonderful project! For more information on, check out their website: http://ottawatoollibrary.com/
