So after stuff your face with turkey Thursday, shop till you drop Friday, shopping hangover Saturday, regular Sunday and Cyber Monday comes… giving Tuesday!!

Here is a great way to give to your local food bank.


Scratch Kitchen is a family owned and operated business in Ottawa that prepares frozen gourmet meals that are delivered to your home. For more info on them click here.

From now until December 13 if you pack up some donations to the local food bank, they can be picked up as your order is dropped off at your home. Simple and easy – you don’t even need to leave the house!

Another bonus, if you write “Soup for Soup” in the comments section when you place your online order, you will get a free soup delivered!

“We are off to a good start, collecting over $50 in cash donations and over 50 pounds of food in the first week,” said Sean Murphy, Chef/Proprietor of Scratch Kitchen.


Also, if you are in a super giving mood and want to keep it local – why not donate to my business start up fund! Help an entrepreneur get off the ground and get yourself a spice perk while you are at it!
