Hoosier Hills Food Bank fundraiser has 26 restaurants providing soup

From Syrian lentil to southwest tomatillo, from carrot coriander to Cuban black bean/African peanut stew, soups from 26 Bloomington area restaurants will be available at the 28th annual Soup Bowl Benefit on Feb. 20.

“My favorite is the chicken velvet from Hive,” said Julio Alonso, executive director of the Hoosier Hills Food Bank.

The annual fundraiser for Hoosier Hills Food Bank will be a hybrid event this year, with around 300 people — about half as many people as usual — attending the event in person and the others watching a livestream on the Mandolin platform.

Soups will be ladled into hand-crafted bowls created by local potters for the people attending in person. In previous years, when up to 800 people filled the Monroe Convention Center, there were about 40 soups on the menu, Alonso said.
