Port Moody business helps launch Soup Sisters
Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers are creating a stir this fall to provide soup for women and children fleeing domestic violence at Tri-City's emergency shelter.
This Sunday, Sept. 29, the non-profit organization will host its first soup-making evening under the guidance of Chef Chris Beall, executive chef with the Boathouse Restaurant Group and co-owner, with his wife Paula, of Eden West Fine Foods and Gifts in Port Moody.
Beall said he is looking forward to the soup-making event and the partnership between Soup Sister volunteers and Tri-City Transitions. "The only thing a good chef loves more than cooking is teaching people how to cook like a chef," he said in a press release.
The plan is for volunteers to make 180 servings of homemade soup on a regular basis for Joy's Place, run by Tri-City Transitions.
Sunday's launch marks the beginning of the partnership, in which Soup Sisters works with a commercial certified kitchen to make four different kinds of soup for Tri-City Transitions. The soup will be made in the kitchen of Eden West Fine Food and Gifts.
"The Soup Sisters initiative to help women and children is more than heartwarming it is soul warming, an example of service above self," says Tri-City Transitions executive director Carol Metz Murray.
Soup Sisters is a national organization that has started several partnerships across Canada to provide soup for vulnerable clients, according to founder Sharon Hapton. More information about the organization can be found at www.soupsisters.org
