Made from surplus or homegrown vegetables, local primary and secondary school pupils will be selling homemade soups to raise valuable funds for FareShare, an organisation that diverts good food destined for the bin to good causes.
Inspired by a training day at Borough Market learning how to make different types of soup with chef Michaela Bowles (home economist on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen) and bread with Bread Ahead Bakery & School, the children have been busy coming up with delicious soup recipes in their schools using homegrown and/or surplus produce.
On Tuesday 5th February these budding entrepreneurs will be setting up their stalls in Green Market, selling their soups to the public and giving our other street food traders a run for their money.
The winter soup sale is the culmination of a eight year relationship with Borough Market and School Food Matters, a charity whose mission is to ensure that every child enjoys fresh, sustainable food at school and understands where their food comes from.
So come on down between 12-2pm and buy your lunch from our young traders, knowing that not only have you done your bit to eradicate food waste, you're also giving to a 'souper' cause.
