Souper Bowl 2018

Souper Bowl 2018

Friday, February 2nd

A Wichita tradition, Souper Bowl is always the Friday prior to the "other" Bowl. Chefs from area restaurants donate their most popular soups, and lunch is topped off with breads, beverages and "church lady desserts" (starting at $1 each). The first 200 visitors get a free handcrafted bowl, with additional bowls (made by local artists and students) available for sale. While you're there, enter the raffle to win a 10.5 inch iPad Pro, a handmade wooden bowl or a beautiful quilt. Proceeds benefit our homeless shelters.

Advanced ticket pricing is available through January 26. Get your tickets here.

Don't have much time that day? Place your order in advance and pick it up at First Presbyterian Church. Order by Janaury 26 to get early bird pricing. If you want to order or would like to help raise money at your Super Bowl party or event, call Carolyn at (316) 264-9303.
