The Organic Soup Kitchen celebrated its 10th anniversary by opening its new kitchen with a ribbon cutting by mayor Cathy Murillo with executive director Anthony Carroccio at its new headquarters on Anacapa Street, purchased with major funding from the Hutton Parker Foundation.

Salud Carbajal presented Carroccio and chief operations officer Andrea Slaby with a Congressional Recognition Award for the outstanding work the organization has done ever the past decade.

The OSK serves more than 100,000 nutritious meals annually to cancer patients, veterans, and the homeless.

They also provided emergency food aid for victims of the Thomas Fire and catastrophic Montecito mudslides.
