After careful consideration, leadership at The Food Depot has made the difficult decision to cancel what would have been Souper Bowl XXVI, aka The Food Depot’s 26th soup-based competition and fundraising event for January 2022.
Historically, the event has raised enough money for over 220,000 meals in event proceeds.
In late October, a survey went out to hundreds of previous Souper Bowl attendees. Overwhelmingly, individual and restaurant respondees indicated that they were “undecided” about attending. The Food Depot holds the health of employees, volunteers, and people we serve in the highest regard. Unfortunately, there are too many unknowns and considerations for an indoor wintertime event. The Food Depot cares about you and the people we serve.
In the coming weeks when we usually sell Souper Bowl tickets, The Food Depot will extend the opportunity to donate the cost of a day-of Souper Bowl ticket.
The Food Depot staff look forward to when we can all join again for this friendly competition and loved community event. Thank you for your continued support.
