The Crowd

Every January, our popular Souper Bowl is held the weekend 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, a silent auction, 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.

Tickets are on sale now.  The 2014 event will take place on Sat., Jan 25 at the Food Bank’s Albuquerque branch.  The Souper Bowl hours are from 11 am to 2 pm.  Tickets are $40 for adults and $10 for children.  Tickets are available they day of the event for $45 for adults until 1 pm.
