Homemade Potato Soup Recipe

January is National Soup Month!

Soup is one of my favorite comfort foods, so I was thrilled to discover January is National Soup Month. I received a newsletter from Women's Bean Project inviting me to take advantage of their soup sale and wanted to share the deals with you.

Women's Bean Project is a wonderful organization with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. I was introduced to the company in 2005 while living in the Rocky Mountains. Women's Bean Project provides on-the-job training to women faced with chronic unemployment and poverty.

Founded by Jossy Eyre in 1989, Women's Bean Project began with $500 in beans and two women living in a homeless shelter. Today, their products are available in King Soopers grocery stores and via the Women's Project website.

The product line includes a selection of bean soups, chili, salsa mixes, spice rubs, coffee beans, baking mixes and gift baskets; all of which are very affordable!

In honor of National Soup Month, Women's Bean Project is selling all soups for a mere $5.00. I have purchased Marian's Black Bean Soup, Toni's Ten Bean Soup, 6 Bean Soup with Organic Beans and Spices, and Firehouse #10 Hot Chili. I also ordered two boxes of Cornbread Mix to accompany the chili. Yum!

I encourage you to support Women's Bean Project by ordering soups, baking mixes, spices, gift baskets, jelly beans or my all-time favorite - chocolate covered espresso beans. Click here to browse Women's Bean Project Products.
