Goodly Foods
produces tomato vegetable soup from surplus vegetables. In addition, their work also provides training and jobs for folks who have had barriers to employment. Their soup also is distributed to community service organizations across the Lower Mainland to help feed those in need. 
Not only is their soup doing good but it also tastes darn good! You can support their work by serving their soup in your restaurant, cafeteria or cafe. They offer it in 500ml containers for retail or 4L bags for food service and are busy creating their next soup, stay tuned for that launch later this year!
