Soul food guru and author Cassandra "Momma C" Gaines, is all about keeping soul alive with her best selling book, Momma C's Soul Food and now with the launch of her new products, Momma C's Soul Food in a Jar at the Homeland Supermarket chain, featuring her Blackeye Pea Salsa, Mild Chow Chow, Pickled Okra, Sweet Potato Butter and Watermelon Pickles. 

"This is the first time that Momma C's Soul Food in a Jar is being sampled and made available to the public," says Store manager Jason Fritz. "Cassandra Gaines is well known in the community as 'Momma C!' I've also known her for many years, so when she came to me and said can I get this in retail, I jumped on it!! It's a local product and we like to see people succeed locally!! It's also a good opportunity for my customers to sample the product and meet the person who made the product."
