The special publication Soup to Self-Sufficiency illustrates the different eras 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 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.
During this milestones year, the Mission will continue its unwavering commitment to eradicating chronic homelessness.
