"Soup Sisters has a unique and simple way of showing kindness in the world: by delivering soup to shelters across North America. I am proud to share my Hamburger Soup recipe in this book. It is a well known favorite with kids! Thank you to Soup Sisters for providing healing nourishment to the young people who need it." --Sheldon Kennedy, O.C., A.O.E., former NHL player and Lead Director, Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Center
"A pot of soup is a universal, inexpensive and nourishing way to show others you care. It is perfect for teaching children the value of making and sharing a meal, especially when they are learning basic cooking skills. This book will inspire your family to cook together, and hopefully, extend your dinner table out into a larger community." --Julie Van Rosendaal, cookbook author, CBC radio food columnist, food writer and editor
