Cincinnatians live in poverty.

of food in the US is thrown away.

 

OUR SOLUTION

 
 

La Soupe bridges the gap between food waste and hunger using a chef based model by rescuing perishable food, transforming it into delicious and nutritious meals, and sharing with the food insecure and our supporters. 

Quite simply, we rescue perishables from grocers, distributors, farmers and restaurants. Most of the food is brought to La Soupe where our chefs transform it into healthy soupes and casseroles. These items are enjoyed by both the food insecure and our supporters. Our volunteer food runners make this happen by rescuing the perishables, bringing the items to La Soupe, and then delivering to our Share Partners. La Soupe also rescues prepared food from restaurants and delivers directly to agencies that feed the hungry.

Below is our impact since inception.

8,511 gallons produced by local chefs.

613,836 servings donated to agencies.

1,028,108 pounds of food rescued.

We partner with Crosset, Kroger, Jungle Jim’s, SugarCreek, and multiple local farmers to rescue over-ordered or "ugly" produce. 

We distribute meals to food insecure families through our 62 "share" partner agencies. These include schools, community groups, pantries and more.

Our Bucket Brigade chefs bolster La Soupe's weekly production by making soupe in their own kitchens. 100% of all Bucket Brigade soupes are donated.
