I was so honoured when Soup Sisters asked me to create a soup recipe for their 2017 Family Cookbook!
I experimented making a few different kinds of soup, but decided to do something that kids would really love to make; Cheeseburger Soup!
Soup Sisters was founded in 2009 by Calgarian Sharon Hapton who had a very simple belief in the power of soup as a nurturing and nourishing gesture that could make a tangible difference. Hapton believed that two of societies most prevalent issues, domestic abuse and youth homelessness would benefit from the care and warmth that comes in a bowl of soup. A powerful message that says 'we care' is now being delivered to over 30 residential shelters across the country through home-made delicious soup made with the finest ingredients.
Thousands of community people are coming together across the country to produce over 10,000 servings of fresh and delicious soups for women, children and youth each month. Since March of 2009, over 1.5 million servings of soup have been delivered to shelters from East to West, and there is a growing network of more than 50,000 Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers participants across the country.

I've had the opportunity to help with a Soup Sisters even in Vancouver a few years ago, and was really excited that this past week, I had the chance to lead a team in making my soup!
