Souper Bowl 2020

Souper Bowl XXVI Returns – February 1, 2020

Santa Fe Convention Center from Noon – 2:30 p.m.
VIP Tasting 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The Food Depot Celebrates its 26th Souper Bowl!

Please join us in celebrating this beloved culinary fundraiser at the Santa Fe Convention Center. Your attendance can help make a difference for those in need in our community.

Last year, over 385,000 meals were served to our New Mexican neighbors in need thanks to the generosity of people like you, who supported this event.

Get ready to sample unlimited mouth-watering soups from 24 of your favorite local chefs as they compete for best soup in four categories—Cream, Savory, Seafood, and Vegetarian—plus the coveted “Best Soup” category.

Purchase VIP Tasting tickets to experience unlimited soup sampling without the lines one hour ahead of the public event.

Voting closes at 2 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.

Local businesses join in Souper Bowl as in-kind and financial sponsors. Culinary experts donate their skill, talent and staff time — plus hundreds of gallons of soup. They are the reason why this event is not only possible, but successful, and The Food Depot’s primary annual fundraiser. We are incredibly grateful for their support.
