Hoosier Hills Food Bank fundraiser has 26 restaurants offering soup

From Syrian Lentil to Southwestern Tomatillo, Cilantro to Carrots to Cuban Black Bean/African Peanut Stew, soups from 26 Bloomington-area restaurants will be available at the 28th Annual Soup Bowl Benefit on February 20.

“My favorite is Hive’s Chicken Velvet,” said Julio Alonso, executive director of Hoosier Hills Food Bank.

The annual fundraiser for Hoosier Hills Food Bank will be a hybrid event this year, with around 300 people – about half as many people as usual – attending the event in person and the rest watching a livestream on the platform. Mandolin form.

Soups will be ladled into handcrafted bowls created by local potters for in-person attendees. In previous years, when up to 800 people filled the Monroe Convention Center, there were about 40 soups on the menu, Alonso said.

There will always be vegetarian, vegan and meat-filled varieties this year. Some are easily identifiable, like Bloomingfoods East’s Serrano Corn Chowder, and others are more mysterious, like Rush Hour Station’s Anger Management, a spicy peanut and tofu soy broth served with bean sprouts and daikon. .

Besides the soup, there will be bread from Muddy Fork Bakery, Mother Bear’s Pizza and Scholar’s Inn Bakehouse and cookies from Rainbow Bakery, Crumbl Cookies and Baked! of Bloomington.

People who won’t be attending in person can purchase a bowl and livestream ticket for $30 per person. In-person tickets are $40 each. Live-only non-bowl tickets are $15 per person. Tickets can be purchased at www.hhfoodbank.org and are available until 5 p.m. on February 18.

Handcrafted bowls for live audience members will be randomly awarded and available for pick-up from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on February 19 at a drive-in style arrangement behind the convention center.

Carrie Newcomer performs with the Indiana University African American Choral Ensemble at the 2010 Soup Bowl Benefit at the Bloomington Convention Center.  This year's 28th annual event will feature some in-person and some live, but will still feature performances by Newcomer and other local musicians.

Alonso hopes the livestream, which will have a 48-hour replay, will attract at least 300 people. Last year’s all-virtual event drew over a thousand viewers and grossed just over $204,000.
