January is National Soup Month!
This top chef wants to share her love of food to help others! La Soupe is a French roadside soup shack that mixes the cooking talents of owner, Suzy DeYoung, with the comfort of a family table.
More than just a delicious restaurant, La Soupe has a variety of programs that are giving low-income kids and families a chance to eat well and learn how to make incredible soups. La Soupe provides several services that help distribute food where it is needed most; including: cooking classes, Chef Bucket Brigade Challenge, where talented chefs work with us to give back using their own or donated excess ingredients and with their therapeutic broths.
They also provide school children with healthy food for the weekend with frozen quarts of soup, fresh fruit and loaves of bread. They are also in partnership with Whole Again, where together they provide food for children out of school during the summer. Who knew soup could change so many lives? Suzy did!
