SOUPFEST IS ABOUT COMING TOGETHER TO EMPOWER YOUTH BY CREATING A FUN, LOCAL, AND DELICIOUS EXPERIENCE!

Where: At local participating restaurants from Hamilton and surrounding Cities.

Why: Soupfest is the major annual fundraiser for Living Rock Youth Centre, a local non-profit in Hamilton. Living Rock has been supporting vulnerable youth since 1985. The funds raised through Soupfest are directed to programs and resources offered to support youth in need. Living Rock offers a place of belonging, safety, and a bridge to the community while supporting youth to develop a personal vision for their lives.

This year has been incredibly difficult for the restaurant industry and we would like inspire our community to support local through offering Soupfest in a new way.  Each participating restaurant will offer a signature competing soup during their hours of operation. A percentage of each soup will support Living Rock and the balance will support local restaurants. Each restaurant decides what amount that they will donate and that amount can be built into the price of the soup.
