Welcome to The Zadie Project
The Zadie Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization feeding Atlanta’s hungry children, families and seniors. I chose the name to honor my father, Jarvin Levison who is known as Zadie (yiddish for grandfather). He is my inspiration for cooking and my motivation for getting involved in my community. He also gave me my very first soup recipe, My Dad’s Turkey Chili. In our 18 year history, it is still our most popular soup.
Souper Jenny is a founding sponsor of The Zadie Project. Starting on December 1st, 2016, for every bowl of My Dad’s Turkey Chili purchased at any of our cafés, we have donated a nutritious meal to an Atlanta family in need. Our initiative is to serve the immediate need of our community by growing, cooking, and delivering fresh and wholesome food to people who don’t have funds or access. Our goal is to provide 2000 meals weekly. Today, Souper Jenny employees and volunteers are responsible for cooking and delivering the soup to those in need.
