Soupergirl serves fresh, homemade soup made with ingredients from small local farms that practice sustainable farming methods in Washington, DC.

Sara Polon, founder, recalls “I started Soupergirl with a very extensive to-do list that was unfinished for years. [The MCN competition] forced me to finish a business plan, and run the financials completely for Soupergirl. The feedback was fantastic, and helped reveal where I could save money, and where I had growth potential.”

SouperGirl is one of many companies that the MCN has worked with that is focused on Sustainable Agriculture, Local Economies, and Healthy Food and Drink.
