Soupstock: A benefit to help stop the proposed Melancthon Mega-Quarry

Organizers estimated that 40,000 people descended on Woodbine Park today for Soupstock, a fundraiser for the fight against the proposed Melancthon region Mega-Quarry. Hosted by the Canadian Chefs’ Congress and the David Suzuki Foundation, over 200 chefs served up all varieties of soup to the hungry crowd. With big names like Michael Stadtländer, Jamie Kennedy and a performance by the Jim Cuddy Band, the event was a follow-up to last year’s well attended and wildly successful Foodstock.Heads Up
