Today is a special day for me because I’m going to be “guest chef” for Soup Sisters.

I’ll help organize 24 people to make four kinds of soup.  We also package and label it for delivery to The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter.  The soups we make today will serve as the lunch program for the next month for the women and families in need of the shelter’s services.

Soup Sisters was organized in 2009 by Calgarian Sharon Hapton.  It’s nice when a great idea spreads like wildfire and Soup Sisters which now has 15 events each month in 9 cities across Canada was just the spark to set this soupapalooza blaze afire.  (2014 Update – Soup Sisters is in 20 cities in Canada and just started up in Los Angeles).
