We are excited to announce the launch of a new social purpose enterprise – New Avenues thru Soup – located on the Urban Plaza of Portland State University. Serving fresh soups and rolls Monday through Friday between 11am – 2pm, the soup cart will provide paid job opportunities for foster, at-risk, and homeless youth. Come grab a cup and be part of the solution to ending youth homelessness!
New Avenues thru Soup is the third enterprise we’ve launched to provide real-world work experience for local youth, along with our two Ben & Jerry’s PartnerShop franchises and the screen-printing business New Avenues INK. Learn more about our social purpose enterprises and New Avenues’ continued innovation in helping youth overcome barriers and realize their potential.
