Sara’s Soups

  • Jan. 31, 2011 10:00 a.m.

Submitted by Nancy Smith–Sara’s Soups is a pilot project for the Queen Charlotte area, which grew out of a conversation around hunger and homelessness.It’s named after a local resident Sara Eaton, recently deceased, who had similar concerns and a hope to feed those in need. Sara’s version was to take the bones from the Seniors’ Christmas feast, make soup and distribute it amongst those in need.This version is fueled by support within the community. Groups such as the Table Tennis Club, Over the Hill Hikers, the seniors, and the Bethel Assembly have taken turns making and donating soup, buns, dessert, and as well volunteering a member or two, for conversation.The kitchen is open 11 – 3 Wednesdays until February 23 in the Seniors’ Centre. For info, please call 559-8028
