About our programs

The Common Good, a nonprofit charitable organization, serves hot lunches including soups every Thursday from November through March. Volunteers deliver soup to people’s homes year round.

The Common Good also serves popovers every day from mid-June through Columbus Day. Summer Popover sales are the primary source of funding for the organization’s winter programs.

Popvers are served on Sunday mornings in the winter.

The meals are free, but donations are encouraged.

Come visit us at the Common Good!

What are popovers?

A popover is a light, hollow roll made from an egg batter similar to that of Yorkshire pudding, typically baked in muffin tins or dedicated popover pans, which have straight-walled sides rather than angled.

Popovers make the world a better place!
