Sasha’s Soup Club

This month is National Soup Month…really.

I met Sasha and Blaise when they came to the Hillel Student Center as undergraduates at San Francisco State University. Today,they are married and living at U.C. Davis, where Blaise is studying to become a veterinarian.

Sasha has a talent for cooking. While still a student, she set up a small catering business and catered the meetings for the San Francisco Hillel Board of Directors. The food has never been so good at our Hillel board meetings since those days. Best of all, it was healthy as well as tasty. Sasha has a strong commitment to wholesome and socially responsible food.

Today she runs a soup club, making a fresh soup with all natural ingredients and then delivers it around Yolo county. She even shares her recipes.

So if you live up in Davis and need your stomach filled with a warm, soothing and nutritious soup, click here and help some struggling students. Struggling, they may be, but starving they are not.
