Review for Organic Soup Kitchen, Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Some years ago I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. The treatments lasted several months. Fortunately, my cancer went into remission and I gained invaluable first hand knowledge of the fears and physical problems cancer patients have to deal with. I wish I knew then of the Organic Soup Kitchen's program of fighting cancer with their delicious, nutrient-dense, plant based soups. (And their volunteers deliver the soups free of charge to people who can't come to them.) This is an incredibly valuable program. I just wish it could extend beyond this community to serve more people in similar straits.

Review for Organic Soup Kitchen, Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After years of following, attending events, and donating to Organic Soup Kitchen with my wife, I received the compliment of being asked to join the foundation's Board of Directors. In this capacity I have intimate knowledge of the work the organization performs and the selfless dedication and attention to detail of the founders, Anthony Carroccio and Andrea Slaby. Rising before the sun comes up each day and working into the evening they prepare delicious nutrient rich soups, painstakingly researched and made with only the most natural organic ingredients. Supported by donations, OSK's mission, based on the conviction that "No person, regardless of financial status, shall have to compromise the food they feed themselves or their family," is basic and necessary to the health and welfare of those they serve, including but not limited to, financially at risk families, isolated individuals and patients valiantly fighting the ravages of cancer. OSK has also developed a highly successful program to deliver their nutrient rich food to cancer patients both at home and in community institutions. To accomplish all this OSK has inspired a cadre of dedicated volunteers, many of whom have found new purpose in their own lives by serving others. In this way, the OKS formula benefits everyone involved.
