Toronto Soup Co. prides itself on making healthy and affordable soups, especially for those in need. For every soup purchased, Toronto Soup Co. gives a soup to someone in need. This has always been the business model for Toronto Soup and will continue through this time of crisis.
Sara, owner of Toronto Soup Co., has donated 2800 portions of soup per season to organizations across Toronto including the Milton and Parkdale Community Fridges, Feeding the GTA, FCJ Refugee Centre and Dorothy's Place, to name a few. Also, Sara's policy has always been to give soup to anyone who says they are in need of soup -- no questions asked -- so she has given soup to countless individual families as well.
