Souper Bowl 2013 – Set for Sat., Jan. 26th
Every January, the popular Souper Bowl is held the Saturday prior to the NFL’s Super Bowl. Rather than a football event, this is a soup and dessert sampling event featuring more than 40 restaurants and chefs. In addition to featuring great food, event guests can enjoy live music, exciting prize drawing packages, and the knowledge they are helping us provide food for the hungry in our state. Attendees also participate in our People’s Choice voting and vote for their favorite soup, vegetarian soup, dessert and booth.
The real winners are the hungry people that Roadrunner Food Bank supports.
Thank you to everyone that attended the 2013 Souper Bowl. Whether you came as a guest, a soup critic, a restaurant, a sponsor or volunteer, each of you helped make the 2013 event a success! Thank you to all our wonderful partners out there in the community! Your support during the 2013 20th Anniversary of Souper Bowl helped make a difference in the lives of the nearly 40,000 hungry people we serve each week.
While we don’t yet have the total amount raised, we did want to report the winners of both of Critics’ Choice and People’s Choice restaurant award winners.
