Community Connections’ third annual SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke will help raise funds for the Community Connections Food Bank. Proceeds from the event will help purchase healthy food options for food bank clients.

The soups, snacks and drinks that feed this event are created by local restaurants and community groups. Family and friends can gather together to share a meal and enjoy some kids activities.

SOUPALICIOUS is a nation-wide event created by the Compost Council of Canada to help support the Plant-a-Row Grow-a-Row campaign that urges citizens to grow food for those in need. Community Connections’ Food Security Coordinator Melissa Hemphill brings this event to Revelstoke for the third year to highlight our talented local chefs, to bring people together with food and to support the food bank.

In alignment with the original intent of this event, SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke is a zero-waste event. Visitors are urged to bring their own bowl and spoon to decrease the need for disposable options. All waste will be collected by the North Columbia Environmental Society and sent to Spa Hills Composting in Salmon Arm.

The third annual SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke takes place at the Community Centre on Saturday, Nov. 24 from 12 p.m.–3p.m. Admission is $10 and kids 12 and under are free. For an additional $5 you can purchase a jar to take home your favourite soup.

Volunteers are still needed to help run this event. Contact Community Connections at 250-837-2920 if you would like to help out.
