As part of Kettle Cuisine's latest hunger relief efforts with the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), the artisan soup maker is donating 12 gallons of kid-friendly soup each week to the GBFB's Kids Café program. Kettle Cuisine also plans to coordinate volunteer groups each month to help serve meals.

The Kids Café program partners with eight area Boys & Girls Clubs throughout eastern Massachusetts to provide a safe environment and healthful meals for at-risk children. The program also aims to teach children about the connection between healthy foods and healthy minds and bodies. Kettle Cuisine has been working with the GBFB for more than five years and has donated more than 14,000 gallons of soup in the past four years.
