The Food Depot’s Souper Bowl is one of our signature fundraising events. After careful consideration and surveying over 150 previous attendees, leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel what would have been Souper Bowl XXVI, aka The Food Depot’s 27th soup-based fundraising event for January 2022. Historically the event has raised enough money for over 220,000 meals in event proceeds. Without this event, we miss an important fundraising event on our calendar. We would be honored if you would consider making a $35 donation in the value of an event ticket.
The Food Depot’s food costs are up 136% this fiscal year over the pre-pandemic period. We know that the rising food costs, along with fuel, are hard-hitting on the people we serve. 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 related to COVID variants for an indoor wintertime event that historically has had over 1,000 attendees. We care about you and the people we serve. We look forward to the return of Souper Bowl this time of year in 2023.
