Tri-Cities Soup Sisters

Get cooking for a good cause at monthly Tri-Cities Soup Sisters & Broth Brothers events to benefit Joy's Place.

The local chapter of Soup Sisters recently relaunched, with Port Moody resident Yolanda Broderick now at the helm, and they're inviting the public to sign up for scheduled cooking events to be held at culinary partner Gallery Bistro.

Cooking nights are lively social gatherings for up to 16 people; past participants have been groups of co-workers, friends and even a collection of teenaged boys, said Gallery Bistro owner Helen Daniels.

Joy's Place is an Emergency Shelter that provides temporary safe shelter and support for adult women and their dependent children who are victims of domestic violence or are at risk of experiencing abuse, threats and/or violence. Food, shelter, and basic necessities are provided for women and their children up to 30 days.

The Gallery Bistro - both restaurant and art gallery combines art and food in a way that makes it truly unique, and well-suited to a community that calls itself "The City of the Arts". Owners Rainer and Helen also love the opportunity to partner with Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers in support of our monthly soup-making events to support the women and children at Joy's Place. Gallery Bistro is a great place for community to gather!

"It's a social enterprise venture for us," Daniels said. Already known for their delicious soup and sandwiches, the Gallery Bistro was a good fit for Soup Sisters, she added. "People are looking more for an experience instead of just writing a cheque. They're putting their heart into it."

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers charge a $55 participation fee per person to cover the expenses of ingredients for the soups, the venue, equipment, supervision, and a Chef or professional facilitator. This ensures that the finest ingredients possible are used every time for the soups we provide to women, children and youth. Events are social evenings with lively conversation, chopping, laughter and warm kitchen camaraderie that culminate in a simple, sit-down supper of soup, salad, bread and wine for all participants. Each event produces approximately 150-250 servings of fresh soup that sustains your local shelter with nourishing and nurturing soup each month.
