Students Make Soup Mix
“It was rewarding to scoop these ingredients together and know we were serving 100 people with it!”
The Gleaners provides missions and humanitarian aid organizations with a soup mix that is nutritious, versatile, and easily and inexpensively transported to areas of need. Provided free – paid for by the love and participation of volunteers and the financial and in-kind gifts of faithful supporters. Monday through Fridays, an average of 60 volunteers arrive ready to trim 4000-7000 pounds of donated fresh produce. The produce is diced in our dicing machine and dried in our dehydration oven creating 25,000 – 30,000 servings of soup each day. Throughout the year, weeks are set aside to mix and package the soup mix in 100 serving bags weighing approximately 3 pounds each.
