3rd Annual Community Soup-er Huge Success!
On Sunday, March 12, the 3rd Annual Community Soup-er attracted more than 150 people to try delicious soups donated by Back to Basics, Biscuits & Co., Cowbell BurgerBar, Custom Deluxe, Jonesy’s Main Street Cafe, LosTapatios, Mae Mee, New Morning and TJ’s Pizza. The event was co-sponsored by Heart of Biddeford and Seeds of Hope Neighborhood Center and showcased local restaurants and the downtown. It is the kick-off to Biddeford + Saco Restaurant Week, a project of HOB and the Biddeford + Saco Chamber of Commerce.
The evening was rounded out by live music performed by Bradford Laverriere and Freddy Dame Jr. in the Pepperell Mill Event Space which was donated by Doug Sanford and Scott Thibeau. Biddeford’s 5th grade students donated hand-made and decorated clay bowls to be taken home by guests.
“The Community Soup-er accomplishes so many complementary goals. Breaking bread (or biscuits) together builds community,” said HOB Executive Director, Delilah Poupore. “And the proceeds went to an organization, Seeds of Hope, that is essential to Biddeford and surrounding communities”.
“We are deeply grateful to Heart of Biddeford, the local restaurants and other contributors, and to the community for your support. It means so much to us.” Debbie Lamb, SOH Board President.
