This weekend, on Saturday, High Line Food,, Slow Food NYC, Edible Manhattan, and the $5 Challenge present High Line Soup–a simple, communal lunch to be shared in the 14th Street Passage of the High Line. The meal (a bean and farro soup, bread & butter, beer/cider/water) is being made in the nearby kitchens of The Green Table by Chef Mona Talbott, of the Rome Sustainable Food Project. Tickets cost $5, and guests will receive a hearty serving of soup, bread and butter – good food accessible for all! Beverages will be available for sale …the Brooklyn Brewery is sending over the last of the High Line Elevated Wheat brew served this summer at The Lot, and apple cider will be available as well. The ingredients have been sourced locally and reflect our mission to promote sustainable, seasonal food.

There are a few things that will need to happen to make this a great event and guest experience, and we would love to recruit a few volunteers to help out from 10am – 2 pm on Saturday, October 22.

We think this will be one of the most fun events of the season, and all volunteers will be served lunch!

Please e-mail Melina at if would like to sign up or with any other questions. (You can also buy tickets here.) Thanks so much for all you do!
