Food for Life Volunteers from Lugansk, Ukraine opened a social dining room to provide hot meals to  155 people. Their tasty lunch consisted of pea soup, bread and semolina pudding.

“The electricity went off before we could complete cooking the porridge and so our cooks thought not to serve it out, but the people demanded it, so we happily obliged,” explained one of the volunteers. 

Many people have expressed admiration for FFL’s soup. Many of them had no idea that vegetarian soup can be so delicious.
