Pushing For A Food Revolution
The Piedmont Environmental Council wrote about Rev Soup. Below is an excerpt.
When Will Richey bought Revolutionary Soup in downtown Charlottesville five years ago, he started working with local farmers to provide as many of the restaurant's ingredients as possible -- from fresh, flavorful salad greens to the meat in his popular lamb curry soup.
"I have a love and passion for local food and working with local farmers," Richey said, "I would never be interested in the business if it was just taking frozen food and serving it to people. That's just not interesting to me."
So, after buying Revolutionary Soup, Richey immediately began working with local farmers in the Charlottesville area to provide as much of the restaurant's food as possible.
