A crowd of 300 filled the Valley Catholic Athletic Center on Oct. 1 for Soup’s On 2016, the popular fundraiser that fights hunger in our region.
Soup’s On is presented by the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and the City of Beaverton.
The 2016 event raised more than $20,000 for the Sunshine Pantry, which provides food, amenities, housewares and clothing to those in need and struggling.
Since it was introduced by the Sisters in 2011, Soup’s On has raised more than $85,000 to fight hunger. Guests have included U.S. Senator Ron Wyden and Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle.

Local vendors provide soups, bread, desserts and coffee for the annual tasting event and there is a no-host (cash only) wine bar.
Guests vote on their favorite soups. The top three vote-getters receive the Gold, Silver and Bronze Ladle Awards.
Celebrity judges present the coveted Judges Choice Award.
