The St. Susan Center soup kitchen is again making soup for sale as an ongoing holiday fundraiser.
The Center receives lots of donated produce, and knowledge of our region’s Native American heritage suggested a simple and readily available combination: corn, beans and squash. For hundreds of years Native Americans grew and ate the three vegetables together for a nutritionally balanced diet. The Iroquois Confederacy (Haudenosaunee) revered them, calling them the Three Sisters.
The Center’s staff and volunteers have been busy processing a bounty of donated vegetables to turn into a supply of Three Sisters Soup that will see them through the holiday gift-giving season. The soup is packaged to make four hearty servings in a package and costs $ 5.00 per package. The Soup is available for purchase at the Center at 31 Water Street beginning November 10th.
Volunteers are needed to continue to help package and label soup, so if you are interested in helping, or if you would like to purchase soup, please call the Center at 664-2253 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
