PHILADELPHIA (CBS)—The newly opened Rooster Soup Co. is the first for-profit profit restaurant of its kind—donating 100% of its profits to a non-profit organization here in Philadelphia.
The effort is fueled by a partnership with Philadelphia’s Federal Donuts and Broad Street Ministry’s Hospitality Collaborative, allowing the soup company to provide an all-day meal service while benefiting non-profit organizations.READ MORE: Philadelphia Hospitals Seeing Sharp Increase In Number Of Children With COVID-19, Rising RSV Infections
Rooster Soup, located at 1526 Sansom Street, will serve a full menu, including soups made from the backs and bones of Federal Donuts’ chickens — over 700 each week, the company says.
The effort will help transform food waste into profits for Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens.
“We often take hospitality for granted and yet many of our fellow citizens virtually never experience this fundamental human interaction,” said Steven Cook, a Federal Donuts partner.
