Terrence Chisholm, Soup Cellar Manager

Terrence Chisolm, Washington Street’s Soup Cellar manager, says that creativity is the fun part of cooking. “I don’t always follow a recipe per se,” Terrence said.  “I have to be creative working with what I have down there.” The Soup Cellar, which serves lunch to about 175-200 guests each weekday, gets its food primarily from Harvest Hope Food Bank.  It also accepts other donations and purchases some food.

Terrence came to work in the Soup Cellar in November of 2018 after being recommended by a Richard Rouse the chef from First Baptist, who had worked with Terrence. Robbie interviewed Terrence, and Terrence said, “The rest is history.”

A native of South Carolina, with some New Jersey ties, Terrence has worked numerous places in the Columbia area including Ft. Jackson Taste of the Low Country, and the University of South Carolina. 

Terrence said the best part of managing the Soup Cellar is the people, the volunteers and “the people we serve.”  He said he talks with our guests and is getting to know some of them.
