This November, the Organic Soup Kitchen organized its annual Thanksgiving meal for the masses.  Although the non-profit organization gears its efforts towards providing healthy, organic meals to the homeless, all are truly welcome.  The organization works with local businesses such as Lazy Acres Market to procure donations of organic food items to be distributed to the community.  Over 100 people volunteered to help at this years event which hosted approximately 500 people.

Be Green Packaging wholeheartedly supports the Organic Soup Kitchen and its mission of providing nourishing, organic food to all.  The company donated plates, trays, and cups for this years event.

Founder Anthony Carroccio is looking to expand the organizations efforts across Southern California by making the Organic Soup Kitchen concept mobile.  He hopes to raise $40,000-$50,000 this year to purchase a truck to execute this concept.

“We want to get this process blueprinted so it works for everyone,” Carroccio said. “So it can be duplicated across the state of California and across the nation.”
