Through that whole time, Margaret and her team have provided the community with comfort in a bowl through their gluten free soups, made with fresh local ingredients.

Remembrance Day is a special day of gratitude and reflection.  I was lucky enough to experience Juno Beach, Vimy Ridge, the war cemeteries with my hubby and child in 2010. It left us all with a sense of gratitude for our fallen heroes , and, our brave young men and women serving our military, past and present.

As a gentle reminder,  we are closed on Thursday, November 11th at our Richmond Store Location.      However, you can find our soups at the The Avenida Market location, business hours as usual.
