I attended my first Soup Sisters event yesterday at London Chef. This volunteer led organization, with locations across the country, invites participants to sign up each month and participate in a soup making evening which benefits Victoria Women’s Transition House. Last night about 18 participants shared the chopping, stirring and simmering and at the end of the night, 150-200 servings of soup were stored in containers and then delivered to our shelter and Harrison Place today where the soup is frozen and used as needed (which is fairly often). The soup is used to feed children staying at the Shelter at lunchtime and often women, after a long day of appointments and juggling all the tasks of rebuilding a life, turn to it for sustenance as well.

What a great initiative this is – soup is a practical and meaningful way to share nurturing and caring for the women who use our shelter and it’s also a great event for your team, book club or birthday celebration. The cost of enrollment goes directly to the ingredients, tools and space for the evening – everything is supplied including a light dinner with soup , salad and wine to wrap up the evening.
