What is a Soup Swap?
A soup swap is when friends, family, neighbors or even organizations get together and share in a meal of homemade soup. Each person brings a pot of soup and at the end of the meal, everyone exchanges bags or containers of soup. The idea is to help everyone fill their freezers with many different soups to help get through the cold winter months.

 Soup Swaps can be done in many different ways.

 It doesn't really matter which way you decide to have a soup swap at all. Just pull out those cookbooks, pots and get started cooking! Bring your homemade soup, freezer bags or storage containers and have a great time!
