HELP FEED THE HUNGRY FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

The Random Acts of Soupness campaign is part of The Original SoupMan’s Al Feed the Hungry Foundation which has the mission that everyone should be able to put soup on the table. Started in 2005, and led by Reggie Jackson, the American icon and Hall of Famer as well as advisor and equity partner for The Original SoupMan, Al’s Foundation donates a portion of every purchase to feeding those in need, including local charities, soup kitchen and pantries, and the Random Acts of Soupness campaign is really just an extension of that. The Original SoupMan strives to support families in need all year round, while also offering families a quick and healthy meal option in over 4,000 supermarkets nationwide. The Original SoupMan has been rolling out this campaign with its new Soup Mobile franchise opportunity that is a full-service kitchen that serves up The Original SoupMan favorites. The campaign came about to help families around the holidays, benefiting local soup kitchens and pantries in New York and surrounding markets that hold The Original SoupMan’s new retail line of Tetra Pak soups.

HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF HELP

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are hurting. We see it from our windows, because our offices are here in Staten Island.

We know that relief efforts will be needed for weeks and months to come.

We’re making a small contribution by serving free, hot bowls of soup to anyone in need on Staten Island from our SoupTruck. We plan to continue. As the weather gets colder, the need will grow.

If you want to make a contribution to help us continue, we appreciate it and so will those we help.

A $10 donation helps us feed approximately 15 people.

Soup for you: Tavares Elementary receives special holiday donation from the Big Apple

JANUARY 5, 2012
Tavares Elementary
TAVARES — The Original Soupman of New York — made famous for its innovative recipes and fresh ingredients and immortalized by the catchphrase “No soup for you” from the TV sitcom Seinfeld — helped deliver a special holiday treat to families at Tavares Elementary.

At the behest of basketball great Shaquille O’Neal, who joined Soupman, Inc. as partner, brand champion and advisor last year, the expanding restaurant sent a shipment of frozen soups to help feed families at Tavares Elementary.

“[Orange County Sheriff’s Office Capt.] Sandy Carpenter and his assistant Jo Ann came to Tavares Elementary where the truck arrived, and helped me disburse soups to some of our families in need,” said Leonora Rossodivito, Family & School Liaison at Tavares Elementary. “What an awesome time we had!”

In addition to the soup donation, Shaquille O’Neal invited some Tavares Elementary students to ride the Shaq-tacular Christmas Parade Float at the Tavares Christmas Parade. The float followed Shaq’s Motorcycle.

NEW YORK’S SOUPMAN SENDS SOUP TO HELP NEEDY FAMILIES OF TAVARES ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

JANUARY 11, 2012

TAVARES — “No soup for you!” is one of the most iconic phrases from the old “Seinfeld” TV series.

But the Original SoupMan of New York delivered the opposite message recently in Lake County.

The popular Big Apple eatery made famous by Al Yeganeh —the inspiration for the “Soup Nazi” character on “Seinfeld” — recently sent a shipment of frozen soups to help feed families of Tavares Elementary School students.

According to the school district, the gesture came about because of basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal, who has made several appearances in Lake County since his retirement. O’Neal last year joined SoupMan Inc. as partner, brand champion and adviser.

A friend of O’Neal’s, Orange County sheriff’s Capt. Sandy Carpenter, and Carpenter’s assistant Jo Ann Taylor, helped hand out the soup to families in need, according to Leonora Rossodivito, family & school liaison at Tavares Elementary.
