Soup Sunday Is A Feast For A Good Cause

Soup Sunday Is A Feast For A Good Cause

Soup Sunday is a Memphis tradition. Every year, thousands of Memphians gather to enjoy samples of soups, appetizers, breads, dips, and desserts from dozens of local restaurants. Tickets are still available for purchase.

It's a smorgasbord, really. It's impossible to eat everything there, though many may try... Even better, all the ticket proceeds support Youth Villages.

That Time I Ate A Bunch of Soup Sunday Classics

For Soup Sunday's 30th anniversary in 2019, I sampled some delicious eats from that year's event, plus talked to a few Soup Sunday vets. You can read on to get an idea of what kinds of cuisine to expect. 

Remember, this annual event is an important fundraiser that supports Youth Villages' mission to help children with emotional and behavior problems. This proceeds from this specifically go to the LifeSet program. LifeSet is one of the nation’s first — and now one of the largest — evidence-informed programs helping young people who age out of foster care.

Eat All The Good Memphis Food At Soup Sunday

First: the food. You need to know that Soup Sunday isn't just a bunch of soups, it's a full menu of delicious soups, stews, and gumbos, plus other snacks, samples, bread, dessert, and more. It's also totally family friendly, and there's even a Kids Zone.

Most of the big dining events in town are in the evenings and aren't 100 percent geared towards families, which is something that makes Soup Sunday unique.

Are you hungry yet? If so, go snag a ticket and we'll see you filling up your samplers on Sunday!
