Building Community Through Food with La Soupe’s Suzy DeYoung
December 10 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for our first Upstander Conversation Series: Building Community Through Food, featuring Founder of La Soupe Suzy DeYoung. On December 10th at 11 a.m., the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center and La Soupe, will host a thought-provoking discussion in the Cr(EAT)e Culinary Studio featuring the Kroger Food Lab at historic Union Terminal.
Suzy DeYoung, a finalist for the 2023 Cincinnati Upstander Awards, will delve into her personal story as an upstander while discussing La Soupe’s mission, which bridges the gap between food waste and hunger. Discover how character strengths can make a profound impact on our community. As the founder of La Soupe, DeYoung leads a team that fights hunger by partnering with grocers, distributors, farmers and restaurants to turn millions of pounds of food waste to into meals for those in need. Suzy was inspired by her father, who, in his teens, was a resistance fighter in France during World War II. After the war, he was trained as a chef and immigrated to the U.S., where he became the first 5-star chef in Cincinnati. Following the conversation, La Soupe’s talented Culinary Team will treat guests to a live food demonstration and delectable samples. Explore how you can get involved with a community expo featuring partners addressing food insecurity and food waste in the region.
