Soup Kits

Create soup mixes for local food pantries, homeless shelters, or soup kitchens

Barley & Vegetable Soup is a mix of dried vegetables, spices, chicken flavored bouillon, and textured vegetable protein that is packaged and distributed by HarvestCall.

Barley & Vegetable Soup is very nutritious and economical

Textured Vegetable Protein is used as a meat substitute and when cooked is very similar to chicken. It also provides a good source of protein for the diet. *Barley & Vegetable Soup is widely accepted by different cultures.
