Soup-er Bowl Fundraiser to benefit the Springville Community Kitchen

SPRINGVILLE — Over the last several years, the Trading Post Community Care Center has seen a rise in the number of families, especially seniors and working families needing help with food, clothing, housing, and other basic needs.

The organization consistently serves over 5,000 hot meals per year and logs in more than 1,000 volunteer hours to accomplish this work. In the rural area, many seniors and those who are disabled struggle with fixed incomes and many families are trying to live on low wage incomes.

Due to these factors, The Trading Post Community Care Center has seen the need to continue its outreach and members are seeking more caring volunteers to reach out through the Community “Soup” Kitchen.

A “free hot meal” is offered to the public every Wednesday at noon and it is open to anyone! The goal and mission of the “Community Kitchen” & Food Pantry is to reach out by:

“Showing God’s love by sharing a meal with our neighbors and offering a hand of friendship.”

The next fundraising effort for this worthy cause is the “SOUP”er BOWL event which will be held Saturday, Feb. 3, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Springville Country Club, 14445 South Cascade Park Road, Springville. Tickets are $12 per person (pre-sale) or $15 at the door and include bottomless bowls of soup, appetizers, and desserts. The event also features MUSIC (DJ- “Rockin’ to the Oldies”), Theme Basket Raffles and 50/50. There will be a cash bar.

Everyone is welcome to attend! Organizers are looking for more people interested in getting involved! People can make a crockpot of their favorite soup/chili, an appetizer, donate a gift or theme basket, or volunteer to help in the Kitchen!

Call 628-3955 or 440-8703 or email to get involved!
