It’s More Than a Warm Bowl of Soup

January is declared National Soup Month. It’s also the kick off to many exciting things for Women’s Bean Project and for our customers! That is why it’s the perfect time to reminisce and celebrate with us with a warm bowl of our healthy, hearty soup or chili.

It’s one of America’s favorite comfort foods through the long, cold days of winter which makes January one of the best months to celebrate National Soup Month. However, there are so many reasons to eat soup all year long. Just as soup nourishes the body, Women’s Bean Project has been nourishing women’s lives for 27 years by helping women thrive through our gourmet food manufacturing business.

It’s more than a warm bowl of Toni’s 10 Bean Soup. It’s about change, hope and life-long transformation for thousands of women struggling to break the cycle of poverty and chronic unemployment. Each product, created by the tireless hands of a woman at the Bean Project, is made with the highest quality ingredients and the highest quality of care.

Each woman works in a transitional job to receive immediate income and support services to overcome barriers to employment. She learns the job readiness, interpersonal and life skills needed to create a brighter future for herself, her family, our community and the economy.

When you eat a bowl of Women’s Bean Project’s soup or chili, you’re experiencing a breath of hope from the woman who, against all odds, is building stepping stones to self-sufficiency and turning her life around.

Real Work. Real Food. Real Promise. We are Women’s Bean Project.

    What a wonderful way to empower women. I received the package of ten bean soup with the cornbread from my mom. I loved it so much that I ordered four more packages to give as gifts, and three bags of cornbread! God Bless….

      Thanks so much Diane for supporting our organization through the purchase of our products. We are excited you liked our One Soup and Cornbread Bundle so much that you purchased more as gifts! The sales of our products allow us to pay the women a steady wage while they begin transforming their lives through the life skills and job readiness skills they learn over the 6-9 months they are employed with us. We are grateful for you!
