The Social Event of the Year



On the Lower Cape, the social event of the year is “Soup Bowls”. The Cape Cod Potters Guild members make and donate the hand made soup bowls, the local grocery stores donate the groceries, local florist fix flowers for the table, the girl scouts decorate paper bags for placemats and the Cape Cod Technical School cooks wonderful soup. There are 3 sittings, 5:30, 6:00 and 6:30 PM.

You are given a bowl of soup, a roll and water or coffee. You eat the soup and then place it in the placemat/bag and go home. I have a wonderful collection of hand thrown bowls by local artist as we have been doing this for over 10 years……. All of the money goes to the local food pantry and this year, some organization agreed to match the funds collected.

I love it. You get a good meal, a nice bowl, and help the food pantry. It also gives other people a chance to help the community.

We have something very similar in this area but I've never attended. It's a wonderful idea - the bowl and "placemat" are great.
