Saj Common Kitchen Soup Sisters

Soup Sisters awesome kitchen partner, Betty Cherkoui will be hosting soup-making events at her Saj Common Kitchen business which can facilitate groups of 20 to make the 60L of soup per month that the Soup Sisters plan to share with the Youth Overnight Shelter.

Betty was inspired to create this space for people just like her who had struggled in the past to find a commercial kitchen to create their magic in. The common part refers to the fact that the fully equipped, approved commercial can be rented by anyone needing a kitchen space to create his or her products, prepare food or hold an event in. Offering bright, colourful painted walls and seating for 20 in Kelowna's hip Pandosy neighbourhood, Saj offers an inspiring and cozy oasis to host gatherings and/or draw culinary inspiration. Besides catering, Betty teaches Lebanese cooking classes and is a busy mother, grandmother with a high heart who has worked with homeless kids before.

The The Richter Street Overnight Program is operated through the Kelowna Boys and Girls Club. This shelter provides a voluntary resource for youth ages 13-18 that are homeless (absolute or relative) or at risk of homelessness and have no safe alternatives. The shelter operates on a first come first serve basis and accommodates up to 10 youth per evening. Males and females are housed in separate areas of the shelter.

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers charge a participation fee per person to cover the expenses of ingredients for the soups, the venue, equipment, supervision, and a Chef or professional facilitator. This ensures that the finest ingredients possible are used every time for the soups we provide to women, children and youth. Events are social evenings with lively conversation, chopping, laughter and warm kitchen camaraderie that culminate in a simple, sit-down supper of soup, salad, bread and wine for all participants. Each event produces approximately 150-250 servings of fresh soup that sustains your local shelter with nourishing and nurturing soup each month.
