Making Dallas Even Better

Oak Cliff Soup Co. Will Start Delivering in December

Oak Cliff Soup Co.

“You’re going to think I’m crazy, but we literally started this business on Wednesday,” said Dina Light-Mcneely.

The professional chef-turned-marketing woman is going back to her roots and her love of cooking, and she already has a fan club. (Bradford Pearson and I are members.) Last week, Light-Mcneely started the Oak Cliff Soup Co., a soup delivery business that she’s been formulating in her head for months. She finally took the plunge last week by starting a Facebook page. At the Cliff Fest  yesterday, Light-Mcneely’s vegan butternut squash was a favorite among locals.

Light-Mcneely plans to launch delivery service the first week of December. Her soup menu will be seasonal and change every week. Three soups are published on Monday, and orders have to be placed by Wednesday. Fridays and Saturdays are when Light-Mcneely and her team of liquid professionals will deliver the soups, which will consist of ingredients from local farms and businesses.

Get ready for soup time, Oak Cliff. One of the first soups in December will be a bowl of Jimmy’s sausage with kale and white beans. (A vegetarian option will be available, too.)

    Will there be someplace that you can pick up soup? Would love to check it out, but can’t get delivery where I live.

  • Dina Light-Mcneely

    Yes you will be able to pick up your order at Bolsa Mercado on Saturdays between 2pm-4pm. If you want to find out when we launch you can sign up for our email list here:

    In the sense that they have the words “Oak Cliff” in them?
