The SOUPer Bowl has come to Central Oregon! The High Desert Food and Farm Alliance held the event for the first time at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Bend Saturday.
With the paid admission, attendees got to sample soups from over a dozen local restaurants and vote on their favorite.
The winner was Mountain Burger for its Coconut Corn Curry Stew.
“It’s so wonderful to see the community support us, to see the restaurant community support us and I think we all work really closely together and it’s an amazing community here, said Sharon Maier-Kennelly, the executive director for High Desert Food and Farm Alliance.
The leftover soup was donated to The Family Kitchen.
All funds from the SOUPer Bowl event will benefit High Desert Food and Farm Alliance and is planned to be held again next year.
