Chef Erin O’Shea
Hospitality is fundamental – pass it on. That’s the mantra of Rooster Soup Company, the very first restaurant in the city of Philadelphia to donate all the profits from their restaurant to support Broad Street Ministry. Through its hospitality collaborative, Broad Street Ministry served more than 76, 000 meals in 2016 and they are the mailing address for more than 3,000 people, enabling them to get an ID, housing, employment and benefits. 100 percent of the profits from Rooster Soup Company supports the hospitality collaborative’s mission of providing meals and social services for Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens.
Norville is no stranger to Marilyn Russell’s Remarkable Women. Three years ago, she served as the keynote speaker at the show’s luncheon.
