Bowls for Soupie – Soup Kitchen Exhibition & Fundraiser
‘Bowls for Soupie’ is a fusion of art and cuisine, a chance to gather and feast in support of food security and community spirit.
Margaret River Soup Kitchen began in 1995 as a gathering place to bring people from all walks of life together to share a meal. Volunteers prepare nourishing, low-cost meals twice a week. More than 20,000 meals are served across the year. ‘Bowls for Soupie’ is the annual fundraiser v to maintain this essential service for the Margaret River community.
