Talk Soup to Welcome Exciting Guest Speakers

Soul Fire Farm Visits Unity House for Dinner Conversation Series

After a summer hiatus, Unity House’s Talk Soup, a program that brings together people and ideas, is back in action!

Talk Soup organizer and Food Security Case Manager Amy Halloran of Unity House is starting the Fall 2018 season off with a bang by inviting some very special guests.

The September event of Talk Soup, slated for Thursday, September 27th at 5:30 pm in the Unity House dining room, will have farmers from Soul Fire Farm.

You can join the conversation- and the delicious, free meal!- by coming to Unity House on September 27th. All are welcome at this free event and there is no need to RSVP. Park in the rear parking lot of Unity House at 2431 6th Avenue in Troy and come to the 2nd floor dining room. There will be soup, and talk of food, farming and the social justice work of Soul Fire Farm. Special thanks to Leah Penniman and all the farmers at Soul Fire for joining us for what will be a very special evening. We are grateful for their commitment to food justice and the work they do on their farm and in the community.
