Eat It, Drink It, Slurp It, And Make Hunger History!

 Soup For Life 05th- 11th March 2012

Last month, I met the enthusiastic entrepreneurial duo; Cully & Sully in Ballymaloe Cookery School. The two were promoting an innovative campaign with Gorta- the freedom from hunger council of Ireland. The campaign is one of many to promote 'National Soup Week' in Ireland which will run from March 5th to 11th 2012.

This is the second year running in which Cully & Sully have teamed up with the Soup for Life campaign. For each delicious Cully & Sully soup carton sold during March 5th to 11th of March, 5cent will be donated to the excellent cause of trying to bring much needed funds to fight against malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa. All money raised will go towards providing seeds and seedlings, rooster hens and training and planning on all aspects of nutrition and food security. Cully & Sully above were pictured at the Ballymaloe Cookery School gardens.

If you want to raise funds for this fantastic campaign, you can host your own Soup for Life event. Alternatively, you can have lunch at anyone of the many cafes, restaurants and deli counters who are supporting this event. For a full list of participants, you can log onto the Soup for Life website:
