Meet the Founder of Soupergirl, Sara Polon

Sara Polon graduated from University of Pennsylvania where she studied history. Her career path then took many meandering twists and turns including working at an Internet start up, leading tours through the Middle East, and several years as a stand-up comic in New York. In 2008, after reading Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, she founded Soupergirl along with her mom, Marilyn Polon (aka Soupermom /Chief Anxiety Officer). Sourcing seasonally from local farmers, the company makes a wide variety of healthy, kosher, all-natural, vegan soups that can be found all over the east coast. You can find Soupergirl products at the company’s two DC area retail locations, Whole Foods stores from Kentucky through Virginia, Giant, Lidl, Wegmans, Peapod and Costco Warehouse from Massachusetts down to Washington, DC. The company also ships soup nationwide via their Souper Meals program.


Soupergirl has received national press, and has been featured in such publications as the Washington Post, Food and Wine, O Magazine, and more. The soup duo was most recently seen on ABC’s Shark Tank, NBC’s Today Show, and CBS’ The Dish. You can find out more and order Soupergirl’s delicious soups at 

This was such a fun and inspiring conversation. Sara shares how her company started in 2008 with her mom carrying bags and pounds of onions and tomatoes and all kinds of vegetables up and down the stairs to the small kitchen they rented at a restaurant across the street. When I asked what was the key ingredient that has helped her stay the course, she said it was gratitude. I couldn’t agree more, as gratitude has been shown to rewire our brain for the positive. I’ve tried many of Soupergirl soups, and all I can say is that it is obvious that love, intention and attention are stirred into each batch. I can’t recommend her soup enough.
