The release of the special publication Soup to Self-Sufficiency illustrates different periods in Montreal’s history and plunges the reader 125 years back, when two Montreal women, Mina Douglas and Eva Findlay, began offering warm meals during a particularly harsh winter in a vacant building that once housed a brewery, which later became the Old Brewery Mission. Since then, the Mission has undergone several transformations, from soup kitchen to shelter to a diversified resource by the end of the 19th century.
All proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards the Old Brewery Mission.
