A bowl of soup will help feed the hungry in more ways than one.

Enactus Okanagan College, in collaboration with the Upper Room Mission, is holding Vernon’s greatest soup event.

Soup’s On has run successfully for the past two years in Salmon Arm, which prompted Okanagan College students in Vernon and Kelowna to jump on board and serve up the initiative in their own communities.

Vernon’s event will showcase soups from eight local restaurants, competing to become the grand soup champion. Attendees of Soup’s On will don their judge’s hat and vote for which soup reigns supreme. At the end of the night, one local chef will be walking away with the prestigious Soup’s On trophy.

Tickets are $30, and will include soup samples from each restaurant, as well as one complimentary drink ticket.

For tickets, go to Prospera Credit Union in the Vernon Square Mall or the Upper Room Mission.

They will also include live music and a silent auction.

This 19+ event is taking place Thursday, March 15 at the Okanagan College Vernon Campus.

Proceeds will go toward supporting the Vernon Okanagan College Enactus, and the Upper Room Mission.

Through events such as Soup’s On, Enactus OC students raise funds to support their entrepreneurial and philanthropic programs in the community, such as their Silver Surfers Program, which helps seniors boost their comfort level with technology.

Money raised for the Upper Room Mission will go to the Healthy Snack Program, which provides nutritious food items to more than 500 local school-aged children and youth in our community.
