The Soup Box

Souping it up to support the food sector and nourish the vulnerable Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce Food & Agri Network in conjunction with Toowoomba Farmers Markets launches a community initiative in conjunction with Foodie Shots, Little Pig Consulting and ALE Clothing and Signs, called The Soup Box.

The initiative will provide Toowoomba’s Basement Soup Kitchen support to support the most vulnerable in our community, in the form of soup boxes which will be used to create warm and nourishing meals throughout our cold winter.
We all know the importance of supporting local not-for-profits (NFPs) and their critical role in supporting the community. In fact, without the regular backing from our generous local business community, many of these organisations could not and would not exist.

Kat Lynn, Owner of Foodie Shots and member of the Toowoomba Chamber Food and Ag Advisory Committee said, “With the cost of living drastically increased, coupled with the rental crisis, the impacts have compounded and put extra strain on services like the Base.

“We are all feeling the pinch however we all still want to help those less fortunate.
“The Soup Box provides the Community a simple way to support the Basement Soup
Kitchen by purchasing just a few dollars more at the Toowoomba Farmers Markets and placing their extra produce into one of the Soup Boxes at the market.

“The Soup Boxes will be provided to Base Services to assist in feeding others in need.
“We could not have completed this initiative without the support of valued Toowoomba Chamber members, Toowoomba Farmers Market, Little Pig Consulting and ALE Clothing and Signs,” said Kat.

Robyn Ayles of the Farmers Market said, “It is great to be involved in this initiative where we encourage the community to come and buy one or a few extra vegies or the like from our local food and agriculture suppliers and place them in the soup boxes which will support our most vulnerable.
“We are excited about the concept of the Soup Box which will run from 1 July till the 26 August incorporating BASE Services yearly Homeless for a Night sleep-out on Monday August 7, 2023
“We look forward to seeing you at the Toowoomba Farmers Market supporting this
community-based initiative”, expressed Robyn.
