Cooking Days

Grandma’s Soup Cooking Days are always about having fun. It is a unique combination of making delicious soups together with young and old. During the Cooking Days, vegetables are used that would otherwise be thrown away,

The Cooking Days are held at different locations and participation takes about 3 hours. An afternoon full of board games, strong stories, more jokes and, of course, delicious soup!

Soup-at-Home days

With the Soup-at-Home days, we reach the elderly who need companionship the most. Through local GP’s, physios, local supermarkets and many other supporters, we reach a large group of vulnerable elderly people. Every week we deliver packages filled with our delicious soup, a motivational card and a surprise to the elderly in your neighborhood. Grab a moment to socialize with your neighbor over a cup of coffee, take a walk or do something together. The Soup-at-Home day is organized weekly from a fixed location and participation takes about 2-3 hours. Your smile, cozy chat or brief moment of contact can make a world of difference for our elderly.


A few times a year we host both small and large events locally and nationally. From the Grandma’s gala to the Grandma’s pop-up speed dating restaurant; innovative events in different locations.
