Not for Profit

Gourmet Soups

Can one bowl of soup help change the world?

The Raw Carrot is a social franchise that believes that every person who WANTS to work should have the opportunity for a Hand Up (instead of just a handout) in life!

We partner with churches and nonprofits across Ontario to create meaningful employment for amazingly talented individuals living with disAbilities and mental health illness.

We’re “stirring up” change in local communities through our delicious, handcrafted gourmet soup.

Together, we are “Peeling for Change”.

All of our soups are handcrafted in small batches and made with love

Our healthy soups are handcrafted in small batches, packed with tasty veggies and free of added preservatives. Fresh ingredients are sourced as locally as possible.

Delicious soups

We guarantee our soups are

  1. Super tasty
  2. Healthy
  3. Made with real food

We’ve seen too many supermarket soups that have indescribable meats and ingredients in them. We make the same soups at the Raw Carrot that we love to cook at home for our growing kids. Our soups are chock full of vegetables and high-quality meat although we have options for vegetarians/vegans as well as gluten-free diets.

You can make a difference

Every purchase of gourmet soup helps those in need. Your choice to “buy social” gives people in your community a job, while you feed your family a healthy meal. 100% of all donations go directly to creating more jobs.
