Soup siblings looking for volunteer cooks

Are you a professional cook or chef who is community oriented, charismatic and good with people in a social atmosphere?

Tri-Cities Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers (a non-profit social enterprise) is putting together a list of experienced cooks/chefs who can volunteer their time (we will provide you with a tax receipt) on occasion between September and June.

Each month, Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers host a social evening at The Gallery Bistro in Port Moody for 16 paying participants (corporate team-building events, Christmas parties, family groups, book clubs) to make 45 litres of soup for Joy’s Place, a transition house for women and their dependent children who have fled domestic abuse in The Tri-Cities.

In addition to making soup for Joy’s Place, participants enjoy a fun and social evening that includes wine and appetizers as well as a light dinner of soup, salad and fresh bread.

At each event, organizers host a guest chef who can answer culinary questions and offer cooking tips to our participants.
