Suzy DeYoung is the founder of La Soupe. La Soupe is a non-profit that rescues otherwise wasted produce to create delicious and highly-nutritious meals for customers, non-profits, and food-insecure families. They create soups, cassoulets, gumbos, stews and anything else that can be shared in a pot. On the weekend they create large batches of soup and deliver them to local partners who feed the hungry.
Suzy wants to hear from Jim Harris of the Perpetual Weekend blog. Before sustaining a spine injury at the end of 2014, Jim Harris made his living from hard days in the mountains. Following six years of teaching wilderness mountaineering courses, Jim began shooting photos, video, and writing for clients like National Geographic, Camp 4 Collective, Powder Magazine, and outdoor brands. His work reflects a deep first hand expertise of wilderness travel and DIY adventure. Since being paralyzed, Jim has pushed towards a remarkable recovery and is finding fresh opportunities be involved in adventure storytelling.
