Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.

Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers is a Calgary-based non-profit enterprise founded five years ago that provides volunteer-made soup for women, children, and you in crisis. Each month across the country, the volunteers make something like 10,000 servings of soup each month. Soup, as they say, is a meal onto itself, but for someone in trouble, seeing comfort and help, it’s a hug in a bowl. Sharon Hapton, the founder of Soup Sisters joins me now to talk about a new cookbook, The Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers Cookbook: More than 100 Heart-Warming Seasonal Recipes for You to Cook At Home. It’s a handsome cookbook, with easy, tasty-looking recipes of a variety of soups, organised by season, and covering every palate. The recipes have been contributed by Soup Sisters volunteers, as well as notable folks like Naheed Nenshi, Bonnie Stern, Christine Cushing, Heather Reisman, among many others, including some folks who’ve been on this program before Pierre Lamielle, Anna Olson, Mark McEwan, Vikram Vij, and Lidia Bastianich. The book is published Appetite which is an imprint of Random House. The website for more is at www.soupsisters.org. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line Program, in Vancouver today, Sharon Hapton; Ms. Hapton, good morning.
