Kelowna Soup Sisters
The soup's on in Kelowna! Soup Sisters Kelowna successfully launched on, Monday, April 11, 2011 in partnership with Okanagan Street Food and in support of Kelowna Women's Shelter.
Our Kelowna Soup Sisters Coordinators delivered a fantastic 200 servings to the shelter early the next morning, and we filled the freezer to the brim with an amazing array of delicious soups.
The Kelowna Women's Shelter offers free confidential counselling, support services, and short term housing to women and children who have experienced relationship abuse. The Shelter provides a safe and comfortable place to stay for up to 20-22 women and children at any given time. Soup Sisters welcomes the opportunity to provide them with a monthly supply of wholesome home-made soup made by people who care from their own community.
Soup Sisters is thrilled to partner with Chef Neil Schroeter who has enjoyed phenomenal success in the Okanagan through his gourmet Okanagan Street Food business. One of the Valley's premiere Chefs and caterers, Chef Schroeter has opened his new restaurant in Kelowna's North end where all of our monthly Soup Sisters events will be held under his expert guidance. The restaurant will also act as a storefront for his ever growing line of products, a catering headquarters, and Soup Sisters headquarters too!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.
