Dehydrated Soup Mix
Throughout the year we will receive donations of fresh, dried and frozen vegetables - potatoes, beets,
oinions, garlic, broccoli, brussel sprouts, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, rutabagas, lentils, peas, beans, etc. - in quantities
that range from a few pounds to many thousands of pounds. These come from individuals, farmers large and small, and food processors.
The vegetables are cleaned and cut up by our volunteers. Everything is then chopped into small pieces and spread
onto pans before being loaded into the dehydrators.
The following day the
dryers are emptied and the now dry soup ingredients are placed in drums, inventoried and stored in our warehouse.
At the end of the year, when we have gathered a good variety of ingredients, our volunteers combine them all into
a flavourful soup mix.
