If you’re lucky enough to live in Portland, Oregon (I hear it’s nice!), you can get organic soup, made from locally grown produce delivered to you each week by bicycle through SoupCycle.
Since they launched two years ago they have:
– Cooked and Delivered Over 14,000 Tasty Organic Soups
– Saved 4,300 Car-Miles by Using Bicycle Delivery and
– Funneled $33,000 to Local Farmers
If you live in the delivery area you “checking out the selections for the following week and placing their order by midnight on Friday; rustic bread, salad and dressing are also available. With a list of subscribers in hand, SoupCycle then buys the necessary produce from local farmers. On Monday it cooks up those ingredients into delectable soup, and then on Tuesdays it begins its weekly deliveries, with a different delivery day for each area. Pricing ranges from $18 for a quart of soup plus bread and salad, which will serve one or two people, to$45 for quantities that can serve six; items can also be ordered a la carte. A $3 delivery charge applies for orders under$18; otherwise, delivery is free. Each of SoupCycle’s trailers can carry some 40 soup containers, 40 bread loaves and 20 salads at once.”
Certainly makes me hungry. Take a look at SoupCycle.
