Vancouver Soup Sisters PICA

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers unite! In partnership with the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts and in support of Kate Booth House and Imouto Housing for Young Women we now have the wonderful opportunity to make soup for two recipients in one event.

Kate Booth House, founded by The Salvation Army, opened in Vancouver in 1985, and has since provided a safe, confidential refuge for more than 4,000 women and children from 83 nationalities fleeing domestic abuse. They offer a home for up to 30 days in a supportive atmosphere and a range of support services for women and children.

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers is proud to support Imouto Housing for Young Women There is an urgent need for low barrier supportive housing for young women in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Girls and young women who are homeless or in unsafe housing face enormous challenges and risks, including violence/abuse, gender exploitation, substance use practices, racism, poverty, pregnancy, poor physical health and barriers to accessing support and services.

The Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts was founded in 1997 by Sue Singer. The Institute is located at the entrance to Granville Island and is Vancouver's Premier Culinary Centre. This accredited, private and co-educational culinary institute provides students with world-class training in a setting filled with both cultural and recreational opportunities. With everything from casual classes to wine programs, PICA's award winning Bistro 101 Restaurant and Bakery 101 Cafe, a wide array of corporate events & catering, their Professional Diploma Programs in Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts, there is something for everyone here at PICA!

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.
