Jason Varney / Primal Supply Meats
Heather Thomason, former head butcher at Kensington Quarters, struck out on her own last year with Primal Supply Meats. The whole-animal butchery service provides pastured, Pennsylvania-raised fresh meats and eggs to top restaurants like Aldine and Tired Hands Fermentaria and direct to consumers through a CSA-style “butcher’s club.”
Now, she’s working with Broad Street Ministry — the “radical hospitality” group that provides essential services to those most in need — to get more grass-fed goodness on the plates of the city’s hungry and homeless.

It’s nice to see that the Wall Street Journal has discovered Philadelphia’s dining scene.

Rooster Soup Company, the Federal Donuts and Broad Street Ministry backed soup restaurant that ran a successful and highly publicized Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2014 has announced its location. The soup and sandwich restaurant will open at 1526 Sansom Street, in the former home of Sansom Street Kabob House.
The concept behind Rooster Soup is to turn Federal Donuts’ unused chicken backs into chicken stock, soup and gravy – transforming what would be food waste into profits that will go directly to Broad Street Ministry, helping the organization to further their work in providing meals and services to vulnerable and homeless Philadelphians.

If you needed one more reason to love Federal Donuts, here it is: Federal Donuts is collaborating with Broad Street Ministry (BSM), a non-profit, to launch a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign will fund Rooster Soup Company, a gourmet soup restaurant where 100% of the profits will go to the Broad Street Ministry’s Hospitality Collaborative. BSM has been providing social services and meals (over 60,000 a year to be exact) to those in need in Philadelphia. Bill Golderer, founder and convening minister of BSM, spoke on the team up saying, “when unlikely collaborators like Broad Street Ministry and Federal Donuts join forces – new possibilities emerge. Getting in the game together leads us past helplessness, and allows us to envision radical new solutions.”
