Ottawa Kosher Soup Registry

CBTO is excited to partner with Ottawa Kosher Foodies, NCSY, Jewish Family Experience, and the Ottawa Vaad HaKashrut (OVH) to bring the Ottawa Jewish community the “Ottawa Kosher Soup Registry.” If you know someone, be it a family member, friend, or neighbour who is not feeling well, please let us know so that we can arrange delivery of a chicken or vegetable soup. All requests are kept in the strictest of confidence.
