Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers is an award winning organization that has received accolades nationwide. The organization was founded in 2009 by Calgarian Sharon Hapton who had a very simple belief in the power of soup as a nurturing and nourishing gesture that could make a tangible difference. Hapton believed that two of societies most prevalent issues, domestic abuse and youth homelessness would benefit from the care and warmth that comes in a bowl of soup. A powerful message that says 'we care' is now being delivered to over 30 residential shelters across the country through home-made delicious soup made with the finest ingredients.

Over 50,000 community people have come together across the country to produce over 2 million servings of fresh and delicious soups for women, children and youth in crisis. Soup Sisters believe in the power of soup to deliver a 'Hug in a Bowl' at a time when it is needed most!
