Russian chefs offer soup to warm homeless on cold St Petersburg nights
ST PETERSBURG, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Most weeks, Roman Redman does a few extra hours in the kitchens of his ribs and burger joint in Saint Petersburg to cook for a less hipster clientele: the city's poor and homeless.
The traditional meat and cabbage soup is ladled into big flasks and driven by volunteers to places around the city where people live rough or subsist on small state pensions.
It's then distributed free to enable people to eat and stock up on supplies and it's particularly welcome in winter when city temperatures can drop to -20 Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit).
