Join us! Soup’s On For All! has warmed the hearts of thousands while helping to provide hot meals for those in need. Held at the B.O.B in downtown Grand Rapids, the event raises more than $100,000 annually for the food and pantry programs of God’s Kitchen, a program of Catholic Charities West Michigan.
This fun-filled evening welcomes more than 1,000 attendees and is made possible with the support of more than 150 volunteers. Guests can visit each of the building’s five floors where they are able to sample soups, breads and desserts donated by area restaurants while enjoying live music and entertainment. Throughout the year, volunteers hand paint thousands of soup bowls. Each guest selects a bowl as a souvenir of the evening — and a reminder that hunger is a reality every day for many in our community. For additional information, visit the CCWM website.
