Rescue, Transform, Share: How an Ohio Soup Shack Is Saving Lives
"It really does take a village to help people," says Sandra Lettie, a volunteer with La Soupe in Cincinnati, Ohio. La Soupe is helping to build and activate just such a "village" of compassionate people from the local area around the goal of producing food from discarded produce and providing it to families in need.
According to La Soupe's CEO, Suzy DeYoung, the organization's central mission is to "rescue, transform, and share." First, volunteers with La Soupe visit grocery stores and farms to pick up produce that was going to be discarded and "rescue" it for use in the soups that the team creates. That produce is then "transformed" into healthy, delicious food by the chefs at La Soupe. Finally, the food is "shared" with those in the local community who need it.
La Soupe provides numerous services to help distribute food where it is needed most. At the Chef Bucket Brigade Challenge, talented cooks work with La Soupe to whip up meals using their own or donated excess ingredients. At the La Soupe restaurant, the staff hosts cooking classes to help teach young people the skills to prepare their own food. La Soupe also partners with an organization called Whole Again to provide food for children while they're out of school during the summer.
With more than 280 volunteers, La Soupe is making a big difference in its local community—and there's much more delicious goodness to come!
