Organic Soup Kitchen in Santa Barbara, California, is not your average soup kitchen.
Anthony Carroccio, president and founder, doesn’t serve up ordinary slop. Instead, 60% of the produce he cooks with is organic.
So this Thanksgiving, not only will he be feeding hundreds of homeless, but Anthony hopes to raise awareness about the importance of local food too.
Anthony expects as many as 500 people will stop by on Thanksgiving for rosemary roasted turkey, quinoa walnut stuffing, honey cranberry sauce, yams, salad, vegetables and pumpkin pie.
Organic Soup Kitchen opened its doors five months ago, and gets most of its produce from local organic farms, and receives donations for other foods like turkeys and organic pies. They even buy biodegradable plates and utensils.
A crew of 100 volunteers will help serve the feast on Thanksgiving Day, and they’re always looking for more volunteers and donations.
Anthony hopes to setup a mobile soup kitchen very soon.
