Oma’s Soup is a fast growing social enterprise with the goal of fighting loneliness among the elderly. We do this by bringing young and old together and organising fun cooking days, where we make delicious soups together, all according to Grandma’s recipes.

Unfortunately, due to the corona crisis this is temporarily no longer possible, but the help we offer to the elderly is even more important. That is why we now do the following: each week volunteers deliver packages to lonely elderly people’s homes containing an Oma’s Soep and a personal card from the volunteers to keep in touch with lonely elderly person. We can finance these activities to combat loneliness by selling soups in the Albert Heijn, Spar, Picnic, AH to Go and Jan Linders Supermarkets. Oma’s Soep also sells her soups for lunch to companies, restaurants, hospitals and hotels. The turnover of the sales is used to help more lonely elderly people.
