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

Rating: 5 stars  

OSK accomplishes a lot with a little. The founders, Anthony and Andrea, recognized the importance of good nutrition in people undergoing cancer treatment. Poor appetite, difficulty swallowing and cancer’s metabolic effects all negatively affect patient nutritional status. Poverty only compounds these problems.

Every week they cook tasty, healthy, nutrient-rich, high calorie soup with all organic, fresh donated produce and have it delivered by their volunteers to the patients’ homes. Each soup meal contains enough for 3 meals and requires only heating. This is a real lifesaver for many of the clients, who simply don’t have the wherewithal to make healthy food.

They know their clients well and bend over backwards to help them. The delivery drivers all have experience working in the kitchen, so they really know the product and share in the vision from start to finish. It’s inspired and inspiring.
