Chicken Soup Hotline

The Chicken Soup Hotline is a student-led, volunteer initiative that delivers hot matzo ball soup to sick students, at no cost. At the start of the 2021-22 academic year, we have started delivering homemade soup again. Students have the option of chicken or vegetarian matzo ball soup and each order comes with kosher cough drops and pocket-sized tissues at no additional costs as well.

Order & Deliveries:

  • Please make sure your soup orders are submitted before 3:00pm if you’d like the soup to be delivered that night. Any soup orders submitted after 3:00pm or during the weekend will be delivered on the next soup delivery evening.
  • Our student deliverers can only deliver to your soup recipient if they receive a confirmation text of address and delivery time BEFORE 4:00pm. If your soup recipient responds after 4:00pm, their delivery will be made the following day. Please make sure your student’s phone number you’ve listed on your order form is correct!
  • Soups will be delivered during the academic year by our student volunteers Monday through Thursday between 5:00pm and 8:00pm.

PLEASE NOTE – We do NOT deliver the following days/times: 

  • Friday – Sunday
  • Jewish, Secular, or University holidays
  • Winter & Spring Break
  • During the summer months

*If it is not convenient for the soup to be delivered in the evenings, you may make arrangements to pick up the soup at Hillel from 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday to Thursday.
