Many La Soupe Devotees have seen the beautiful Kristen St. Clair, sitting quietly in the corner of the kitchen, typing away at the computer. We just want to make sure all the IN THE FIELD devotees do not need to keep up their “where is Kristen search”…She is on Roundbottom Rd., adding her brilliance to our programs of Rescue…Transform…Share. Very soon we hope to be able to meet all the IN THE FIELD devotees in a new teaching kitchen, where Kristen will be our Director of Culinary Education. Thank you Kristen for an amazing job thus far in helping us grow our programs!

Thank you Kristen for an amazing job thus far in helping us grow our programs!Friends, I have news! I am now collaborating with the wonderful food rescue nonprofit La Soupe, focusing on Program Development. Soon we hope La Soupe will move into a larger kitchen with a storefront and at that point In the Field has been asked to design and teach the culinary education in the new space! In the Field remains active in the meantime, however, much of my time is now focused on building La Soupe's programs. I am overjoyed to have this incredible opportunity and look forward to all the classes to come under La Soupe's roof! ... See MoreSee Less

SCHOOL IS OUT for Summer! Graduation celebrations will continue throughout this holiday weekend. This year for the first time, Hughes STEM High School had a graduation ceremony for their 8th grade. We were asked to be a part of their celebration. We love receiving these thank you notes. Congratulations to all graduates, from P-K thru college….we love being able to provide a celebratory meal for those in need, and receiving notes like these!‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful food!
We actually ended up having about 200 people.  A large number of parents and family showed up for the graduation that we were not expecting.  The food was devoured!  Many compliments from families, students, staff alike.
La Soupe made this a very special day for everyone to remember.Thank you so very much for your kind donation!
We hope to make this a tradition!
Thanks again!-Grace Conrad and the 8th graders from Hughes

Our volunteer of the week: Gretchen Griffith
Each and every week our wonderful volunteer Gretchen arrives with a smile on her face.  She is a professional apple fennel slaw maker.  Slaw, slaw and more slaw!  Not only does Gretchen spend time working in the kitchen, she also makes a weekly run from Mariemont Kroger to la Soupe, saving hundreds of pounds of produce from being thrown away.  We also want to thank her for dressing up our outside flower pots with flowers from her own garden.  We so appreciate your dedication Gretchen!

I always look forward to having Gretchen in the shop. Thank you for all of your help!

You are lucky to have such a great volunteer!

Need another volunteer? I can help sometimes!

The slaw is simply a ruse so I can witness, admire, and be inspired by the endlessly talented and generous La Soupe team. I’m thrilled to play a small part in the rescue + transform + share revolution!

Always so happy to see you at "your station". Beyond grateful to your friendship, devotedness ( is that a word?")and professionalism when you are with us.

Gretchen Griffith is a wonderful, trained volunteer

Gretchen! The queen of the apple fennel-pecan slaw! We love you❤️

Gretchen you are amazing and I cherish our friendship!

Gretchen Hranac Griffith is wonderful. La Soupe is lucky to have her!

Love her! Gretchen is as good as it gets ....

Congratulations

Gretchen is surely a catch! 👍

Hooray for Gretchen!!
