Souper Bowl 2012

I go every year. This is a really worthwhile event for a great cause. Food is very good, too. See you there.

2012 Souper Bowl

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.

Tickets usually go on sale in early September.  The 2012 event will be held Saturday, January  28th at the Food Bank.  The Souper Bowl hours are from 11 am to 2 pm.  Tickets are $40 for adults and $10 for children.  If you purchase your ticket the day of the event ticket prices are $45 for adults.
