Kettle Cuisine announced new hunger relief efforts with longtime partner The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB). The artisan soup maker is donating 12 gallons of kid-friendly soup each week to the organization’s Kids Café program, and will continue coordinating volunteer groups to help serve meals on a monthly basis. Kettle Cuisine has been working with the GBFB for over five years and has donated over 14,000 gallons of soup in the past four years.
The Kids Café program partners with eight area Boys & Girls Clubs throughout eastern Massachusetts, to provide a safe environment and more than 225,000 meals a year to at-risk children. The program strives to be an educational outlet, teaching children about the connection between healthy foods and healthy, active minds and bodies.
“The Greater Boston Food Bank and the Kids Café program share our dedication to providing nutritional meal options to the people who need it most,” says Jerry Shafir, founder and CEO of Kettle Cuisine. “All of our soups are made from scratch, with the highest quality, all natural, fresh ingredients, to help maintain a healthy diet, rich in vitamins and minerals. We’re excited about becoming more involved with such an outstanding program, and our employees enjoy the opportunity to help serve the communities where they live and work.”
