Meet the Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers

It’s fall, and nothing says comfort quite like a warm bowl of soup. Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers feel the same way. A national non-profit organization (they are in 10 Canadian cities), they are dedicated to providing comfort to women, children and youth through the making, sharing and donating of soup. 

The concept is simple: It’s a year-round program where participants pay a $50 registration fee to participate in a soup-making event at a local professional kitchen under the guidance of a chef facilitator. Each event produces approximately 150-200 servings of delicious soup that are then delivered fresh to a local shelter.

For young professionals, these events are social evenings where you can mix and mingle as you chop fresh ingredients and make soup. Each event is lead by a chef from one of the city’s top restaurants who walks you through the whole process. In Calgary, these evenings of soul food are held at the Cookbook Company, which is known for its fantastic cooking classes. 

Looking for a fun evening with friends or a team building opportunity with colleagues? Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers offer group bookings for groups between 12 and 35 people. Whether it’s a corporate outing, or simply a fun night out with friends, not only do you get a unique evening of fun, but you also know that it’s an opportunity to make a difference in the community. In Calgary, the organization supports The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter, The Doorway, and Awo Taan Healing Lodge.
