Tom Lu's Charity Soup Kitchen

Thursday, March 15, 2018

 

These are the vegetables we cut up for our soup kitchen charity event we held last year. The majority of the event was planned by Jenna, Katie, Amelia and me. We organised event approval, logistics, soup choices, costs, location, assistance and the execution of the event.

The soup kitchen was a good chance for me to practise independence, and although some assistance was still needed, it was minimal. Working in our team of four, we got to know our strengths and collaborated well to ensure that the event ran smoothly.
 
The soup kitchen charity event raised just over $500 for families in Cambodia to help improve their standard of living.
 
We were lucky enough to have pumpkins donated by a local fruit and veg store which was very generous. However, we were also able to give back to the community by supporting local produce for our other ingredients.
