“Thank you, I appreciate the invitation to be here. I think what everyone is doing here is beyond amazing.”
We know there is so much need in our community to serve men, women, and children in all sorts of situation and food is how we have chosen to show our love. When we cook for our family and friends, we put our heart into it. We provide a nourishing meal to show how much we care for people.
I started Honest to Goodness nine years ago to provide solutions for busy professionals and people who don’t have time to cook for themselves. We have eight chefs that provide food to keep them happy and healthy. Our vision is to do good and make a positive difference for people, not only the clients that hire us but also in our community as well.
We have actually signed you to provide a meal at the shelter in April and I am excited about our team can get together for that event.
A common culinary term is mise-en-place, which means everything in its place. It’s more than about being organized for chefs it’s a mindset, is how we life our life. Get everything ready before you start assembling –it makes it simpler quicker easier.
Our meal donors are like our be-all and end-all and we are so grateful for the support we receive day after day! We are rarely without food, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

People facing homelessness can often feel invisible, and interacting with them (when we could) and seeing them enjoy their meals fills our heart with joy. We believe that in uplifting others, we all rise.

The ladies are very grateful. Every time the meals come in they smile at how beautiful the food looks and give their gratitude for the delicious food.

The pandemic really brought home for The Sophia Way the value of the meals you donate and the hard work you put it to cook meals. Families, book clubs, churches, temples, groups are doing this every day, cooking for more than 40 women very day. Your donation of meals allow us to use the funds to support women in other ways. We are grateful beyond words.
– Maya Subramanian, The Sophia Way
We have so many amazing groups and communities of faith that help us with our meals. It’s a big ask and we definitely want to acknowledge that and we want to extend our heartfelt thank you for everything that you are contributing to our community. Thank you so much for joining us. We are looking for more ways that we can connect with one another. We are grateful and touched by the time and effort that it takes to prepare these meas for the women we serve. It’s been wonderful to connect with you over this last year and we are looking forward to connecting with you more often.
