Soupergirl is Sara Polon, a former stand up comedienne turned soup-maker. After reading Michael Pollan’s book, the Omnivore’s Dilemma, Sara decided to get involved in the local food movement. She thought about being a farmer but she can’t even keep her house plants alive.

Soupermom is Marilyn Polon. She’s a home taught master in the kitchen. She raised the Polon kids on natural, freshly cooked and delicious food. Soupermom, aka the Chief Anxiety Officer, and Soupergirl teamed up to bring locally inspired, nutritious, and delicious soup to the hungry citizens of Washington, DC and beyond.

To be clear – they are not chefs. They are cooks. They didn’t go to the Culinary Institute or the Cordon Bleu. Quite simply, they love soup. Their soups might not always be pretty (though usually they are) but they are really good. And good for you!
