Soup stories is a winter series of events, with local elders mentoring youth in the kitchen, then serving meals, where community gets together to solve the world's problems... or at least connect over them.
Each Soup Stories event brings community elders and youth into the kitchen together to create a giant cauldron of homemade soup that will be fed to the community. Not only are skills shared, but so are the stories of the soup, our grandmother’s gardens, and the memories that food brings us.
Soup is made in the afternoons as a small group, and then we invite you to come and join us to enjoy this labour of love.
Soup’s on (by donation) as a “Food for Thought” exchange, where we invite the community to ladle up, and share thoughts about key issues that affect our communities. Our hope is simply to reconnect after such extreme social isolation, support neighbour to neighbour community building, value the role of our elders, and to get people talking about what matters in their communities. We may even get some legs onto some of the good ideas shared, and start some new initiatives or programs from what we learn.
