Special Mention: Rooster Soup Company
A girl’s gotta eat, right? So why not hit up an adorable diner with a conscience?
Every week, Federal Donuts turns 500 pounds of spare chicken parts into the broth that becomes the backbone of Rooster Soup Company. With your simple and generous act of eating a meal here, you are helping to provide hospitality to those who are often least likely to receive it.
100% of the restaurant’s profits go to support vulnerable Philadelphians though a ministry collaboration.
Cost: $4 for a cup of soup but their other meals are well worth the splurge.
