For almost a decade, Bobette’s Take Out has been dedicating the month of February to helping the Beth-El Center. February is Butternut Buddy month’ at Bobette’s Take Out, 93 Boston Post Rd. in Milford. For every sale of their Butternut Bisque soup, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Beth-El Center.

According owner Bobette Moore, “We’re happy to help Beth-El because they’re doing great things to assist the needy in the community of Milford.”

Moore and co-owner Gary Caulfield, who started their operation with just a hot plate, are proud of their original soup recipes, including their much acclaimed mussel chowder. With over 100 varieties, Bobette’s serves up a different combination of seasonal or customer favorites daily.

Bobette's has earned numerous accolades over the years, including winner of the best soup in the 2012 Advocate Best of New Haven Reader’s Poll and best chowder classic in the 2012 Editors Choice Yankees Magazine Best of New England.

All Butternut Bisque purchases at Bobette’s during February will help the needy and alleviate homelessness and hunger in Milford.
