The Return of the Pantry’s “SOUP”er Bowl Event

We are excited to celebrate the return of the Holliston Pantry Shelf’s annual “SOUP”erbowl event that was forced into a hiatus for a few years (thank you COVID-19!). The board members and volunteers alike are beaming with joy to host the 14th Annual “SOUP”erbowl event on Friday, Feb. 9. “SOUP”erbowl will be held at Saint Mary’s Parish Hall located at 8 Church St. in Holliston. 
The event starts at 5 pm and ends at 7:30pm (perfect timing to swing by for a soup dinner and scoot over to Anthony’s on the Green for the “Back to the 80’s Dance”!).
We have an amazing show of support from our local businesses. The cornerstone of this event is the soups and our Local businesses responded with a resounding show of support that gives us a delicious menu this year:
• Bar Athena - Sausage, Bean, and Winter Vegetable
• Bazels - Butternut Squash Soup (GF)
• Bertucci’s - Lentil Soup (Vegan)
• Casey’s - Chicken Dumpling Soup
• Outpost Farm - Broccoli Cheddar Soup
• Superette - Chicken Noodle Soup
The fundraising part of our event comes from sponsorships and ticket sales. We are thankful to have secured the 26 sponsors to be on the infamous “soup mug” that is given to each adult ticket holder. It is with much gratitude that we share with you the 2024 “SOUP”erbowl sponsors:
