When founder Marti Wymer's mother called to let her know she'd fallen ill, she vowed to find a way to sooth her spirits from more than 3,000 miles away. Marti was inspired to comfort her mother the way she'd comforted her as a child when she got sick: with chicken soup. Spoonful of Comfort continues the tradition by helping care-bearers send long-distance love with gourmet soup-care packages. The soup is derived from an old-fashioned, feel-good recipe and is made to order in small batches. All-natural ingredients such as free-range chicken and organic vegetables ensure savory flavor and infuse the soup with spirit-soothing superpowers. In addition to the farm-style Mason jar of soup, the bundle includes six made-from-scratch rolls, six oatmeal-raisin cookies, an inspirational coin, a pair of spa socks, and Spoonful of Comfort gift cards. Upon opening the package, faraway friends and newfound pen pals will be greeted with a handwritten note featuring your own comforting message or tail-wagging limerick.
Spoonful of Comfort's country cure-all will impress broth buffs, cheer up remote woebegones, and force the unconditional surrender of cold- and flu-bug tank battalions. One year after the passing of Marti's mother, Spoonful of Comfort hand-delivered its first jar of soup to a woman with breast cancer. Today, Spoonful of Comfort works with local, national, and international charities and contributes a portion of every sale to the American Cancer Society.
