Food & Shopping
Who are you calling ugly?
At The Soup Kitchen, we love all weird and wonderful things, so we thought it was about time we shared the love.
We also love to offer you great food at great prices, and the produce markets are jam packed full of deliciously ugly fruit at reduced prices. This freaky fruit is often overlooked by those in search of perfection, but not by us. We love the wonky shaped pears, the bumpy apples and even the slightly blemished bananas make us smile.
As a pledge to our love of ugly, we are excited to announce the launch of 'Ugly but Sweet'. You can now taste just how good ugly fruit is, at perfectly cheap prices, and save the planet to boot by reducing wastage. Each day we hand select the ugliest fruit from the markets, so you can grab your daily dose of deliciously ugly fruit.
Selection and price vary depending on market availability. Available from The Soup Kitchen.
Pay It forward with soup
At The Soup Kitchen it is their mission to enrich lives and support the well-being of the campus community, both on and off campus, through affordable, convenient, nutritious and tasty food.
To support this ethos, Hiranya Anderson from the Department of Linguistics and the team of chefs at The Soup Kitchen have cooked up a great idea on how we can all do our part to give back to the Macquarie University community - by 'Paying It Forward'.
The 'Pay It Forward' campaign encourages patrons of The Soup Kitchen to share the love and, if able, perform a small gesture of generosity, by shouting a soup to those in need of a delicious and nutritious meal.
Often, eating a healthy, substantial meal is not a priority among many people at Macquarie, due to time, cost or other restrictions. The Soup Kitchen want to change this, one soup at a time, believing it is important that as a community, we band together to perform more random acts of kindness to support those in need or just brighten someone's day!
