Weʼre raising £500 to COVID-19 SOUPE KITCHEN DELIVERY SERVICE - NW11 LONDON POSTCODE
- Hampstead Garden Subburb
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My name is Sam and I am a stay at home mum of a teen and a tot- I live in NW London with my girls and my husband. I used to work in the corporate world and have been on a career break since having baby Olympia aged 47. I am super passionate about cooking and spending time in the kitchen is a feel good factor for me. I am one of the Masterchef 2020 contestants!
With a serious period of social distancing and voluntary and compulsory isolation required to fight the pandemic, I have set up 'La Soupe Kitchen'.
My motives are clear: I want to be able to offer healthy vegetarian soup to those most IN NEED during this COVID 19 pandemic period.
The elderly, people living alone, the homeless and people with physical and mental disability, those with weakened immune systems, or mental health issues. I am a stay at home mum who loves to cook and as myself will be house bound mostly, my fear of going insane will be eased by cooking and ensuring I help others in the process. I easily get cabin fever so in order to protect my mental well being also, this initiative will help me have a focus when I wake up in the morning.
This is non profit making - donations welcome in order to keep it going to cover costs of ingredients and, containers,
Making soup en masse (from a small home kitchen) is the most obvious and soups are the perfect 'feel good' food. It uses the most fresh vegetables and therefore offers the most nutrients. I am self funding this for now so it is also the cheapest way to make a tasty plate of food. There is nothing like the taste of home made soups and the 'fresh ones' from the supermarkets never taste quite like a real fresh one. We also know that supermarkets will start being short of supplies.
As I am protecting myself and others, I will NOT have direct physical contacts with the people I deliver to and will keep social DISTANCING. Soup will be left on door step or delivered by KEEPING the recommended social DISTANCE of 2 meters.
During my cooking I will observe the HIGHEST standards of HYGENE, wash my hands regularly, wear cookery gloves and a face mask. Should myself or someone in my household show any of the symptoms of Coronavirus, my service will be SUSPENDED until our isolation period is OVER and we have the all clear.
I live in NW11 - Hampstead Garden Suburb so for now I service this postcode only but if the service is required very close to NW11 borders get in touch.
Sunday to Thursday- check how to BOOK by following this link: www.samanthalhoas.com
HELP make this work:
1/ Share my link, and If you know someone that NEEDS food delivered to them in NW11, tell them about me and La Soupe Kitchen.
2/ DONATE either by donating on this, or sending me supplies (see below)
My soups are vegetarian and some may contain legumes like beans or lentils. If i can get hold of Kosher chicken, i will make chicken soup on Fridays.
