Soup Week: Oct. 5 to 11 + We’ll ‘Spill the Soup’ on Oct. 27

With our annual Soup’s On! event canceled, we offered an alternate way to support Share: Soup Week! (a spin-off on the popular TV series ‘Shark Week’). This week-long, virtual fundraiser was vital as the soup is still on* at our Hot Meals program and our Housing Navigators continue to search for affordable housing for individuals and families in our community who have been and continue to be impacted by the pandemic, unemployment and the struggling economy.

Over the course of October 5 to 11, we highlighted our chefs who were going to participate in Soup’s On! and encouragde the community to visit each of the restaurants – for take-out or in-person dining* (socially distant & with a mask!) – to try their soup. Plus, we assigned a special donation link to each restaurant and encourage folks to ‘vote’ with a donation to Share in honor of your favorite soup. The restaurant and chef who raised the most over the course of the week will be award the coveted Golden Ladle at an on-line ‘Spill the Soup’ event:

  • Join us on October 27 at 4 p.m. as we ‘spill the soup’ in a virtual celebration to present the Golden Ladle winner and honor our Volunteer of the Year and Community Partner Award; Hosted by Eric Sawyer, BBSI, with awards presented by Waste Connections
