WASTEd and the City was a HUGE success! As a first time event, it went extremely well. Thank you to everyone who participated - sponsors, restaurants, volunteers, and patrons! We will do it again next year.
La Soupe is thrilled to announce our lease in Walnut Hills has been signed. We will be doing our amazing work out of 915 East McMillan St. The new facility will provide 4,000 square footage for La Soupe’s production and distribution hub in a neighborhood that is currently a food desert. An additional 1,000 square foot storefront will house our new vision of rooting culinary education into our mission of Rescue Transform Share. To support our relocation the 915 Capital Campaign will kick off at the beginning of 2019!
