La Soupe, a nonprofit based in Newtown, recently taught a cooking class for families of West Clermont preschoolers. It took place at the United Way Born Learning Academy at WIthamsville-Tobasco Elementary School.
Following the lesson and food preparation, each family took home the results: a ready-to-cook meal – slow-cooker stuffed peppers – and a new slow cooker.
United Way Born Learning academies strive to help parents, families and caregivers promote school readiness and literacy.
La Soupe rescues otherwise wasted produce to create nutritious meals for customers, nonprofits and food-insecure families. It partners with Kroger, Jungle Jim’s and various local organic farms.
