Thank YOU for Joining Us for Another Helping at The Food Depot’s Souper Bowl!

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

At Souper Bowl 2017, over 160,000 meals were served that might otherwise been missed, thanks to the generosity of people like you, who supported this event.

Guests this year sampled unlimited mouth-watering soups from favorite local chefs as they competed for best soup in four categories—Cream, Savory, Seafood, and Vegetarian—plus the coveted “Best Soup” category.

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 $35 for Adults & $10 for Children 6-12

Children 5yrs and under are free.

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.
