The SOUP’er Start Event
Happy Planet and The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS) have had a great start to 2015 – in fact, you could say a ‘Soup’er Start.
This event was partly an effort to kickstart people’s New Year’s resolutions to eat more fresh, healthy foods but also to support the GVFBS which does such great work in the community. So we spent January 7th handing out thousands of packages of our fresh, all-natural soups in downtown Vancouver, while accepting donations for the food bank.
We are delighted that this 2015 ‘SOUP’er Start event raised over $3000 in a few short hours (translating to $9000 in Food Bank terms), which will be used to purchase fresh local produce for food bank members. We will also be donating more than 58,000 packages of fresh soups to help warm and nourish the community in the cold weeks ahead.
