Souper Bowl 2018

The Albuquerque Journal presents

Souper Bowl XXIV Returns – January 27, 2018

Santa Fe Convention Center from Noon – 2:30 p.m.


Join Us for Another Helping at The Food Depot’s Souper Bowl!

This beloved fundraiser returns for its 24th year at the Santa Fe Convention Center. Your attendance can help make a difference for those in need in our community.

Last year, over 160,000 meals were served that might otherwise been missed, thanks to the generosity of people like you, who supported this event.

Get ready to sample unlimited mouth-watering soups from your favorite local chefs as they compete for best soup in four categories—Cream, Savory, Seafood, and Vegetarian—plus the coveted “Best Soup” category.

Voting closes at 2:00 p.m. when guests are welcome to further their impact by purchasing $5 takeout containers to fill with any leftover soup. Winners are announced before the event ends.

At The Food Depot’’s annual Souper Bowl, local businesses sponsor the event and restaurants donate their staff time and talent—plus hundreds of gallons of soup. We are incredibly grateful for their support.

Tickets are $30 for Adults & $10 for Children 6-12

Children under 6 are free. Tickets will go up to $35 at the door, so plan to purchase early!


When you buy tickets to the event and Souper Bowl merchandise, you help feed those in need. Last year this highly anticipated event raised enough funds to provide over 5 semi-trucks of food to serve the most vulnerable members of our community. Plan on purchasing your tickets December 1st and taste how good it feels to help end hunger!
