Liberty in a Soup
December 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
WWAC and 118 Elliot are sponsoring this celebration and benefit event being offered by the Haiti Orphanage Sponsorship Trust (HOST), a small, grassroots non-profit based in Vermont whose mission is to meet basic needs for food, education, medical care, and other essentials for the children living at Foyer Evangelique Orphanage in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti.
We will screen a documentary by Haitian filmmaker Dudley Alexis called “Liberty in a Soup.” This film tells the story of the Haitian Revolution in 1804 and the origins of the Haitian Independence Day tradition of Haitian families gathering to celebrate freedom and enjoy a meal of a pumpkin-based soup called Soup Joumou each year on January 1.
After the film, we will enjoy a meal of homemade Soup Joumou, traditionally a mix of squash, potatoes and meat, but we will also offer a vegetarian version as well as bread, cheese and beverages. Suggested contribution is $10 per person. All proceeds will be utilized to support HOSTs mission.
