Soup for needy in Chapel Hill and Durham

We are launching a free Soup Kitchen and need your help!

Did you know research from the Southeastern University Consortium on Hunger, Poverty, and Nutrition suggests that on average families need an income of twice the federal poverty level, $29,160, just to afford basic expenses? I’m writing this to you from Pittsboro in Chatham County. Just a county or two away, income levels are below the state average of $30,000 making access to nutritious meals challenging.  
Here are some of the items we still need to purchase:
  • Spices! Contribute $50 to fill our spice cupboard with fair-trade spices.
  • (Big) soup pots A generous donation of $200 buys an industrial-sized soup pot and a giant ladle. We still need 3 gifts in this amount.
  • Commercial walk-in fridge  Your $250 contribution buys one shelf of a commercial walk-in refrigerator, a crucial element of the commissary kitchen where we’ll make the soup!
  • Lights, camera, soup! When you give $500 you’ll buy the light fixtures that will hang over our prep kitchen and workspace. We still need 10 gifts in this amount.

Thank you for reading and listening. 

Our plan is to launch this soup kitchen this year, but we can't do it without your help! If you haven’t already done so, would you make a donation by clicking the button below?

We have used Food Fairy 3 times for three different work events we hosted at our home. We have been very pleased each time. I love that they grocery shop the day of, they cook in my house, use my platters and serving utensils, and they leave it all ready for me to serve to my guests. The presentation and organization are outstanding. And, the food has always been fantastic. They have worked with me to have 2 COVID friendly outdoor events, making everything in bite size pieces with individual serving pieces, along with 1 COVID friendly indoor event. Additionally, when there's food left over they share great ideas on ways for me to use it. Additionally, the printed menu and food table tent cards make it extra special.

Thank you so much for making a surprise 50th birthday party everything it could possibly be. To rave about the food preparation would be stating the obvious. It was absolutely delicious, well organized and an overall fun adventure. I must say, equally as important was the care and detail that went into the planning, preparation and execution. It went off without a hitch. In this time of Covid... the attention to that factor was not unnoticed, I was very particular and concerned about having a " stranger" in the home but to that point, greater precaution could not have been taken and we, a small group of 6 felt completely comfortable. Please consider this the highest endorsement of a job well done.

I needed nutritious meals to assist my recovery from a recent illness. Food Fairy responded with a delicious blend of stews and soups that helped restore my health. Their food was tasty and they went out of their way to assure my satisfaction. I highly recommend The Food Fairy.
