For over 30 years, Youth Villages has made an impact on the lives of Mid-South children and families, and this year will be no different. We know of a great way to support them in doing this, AND you get to eat some tasty food as a reward. Soup Sunday, happening on February 27th & 28th, will have you eating good for a greater cause.
***UPDATE: The full list of items (think gumbo, prime rib and potato soup, enchilada soup, and even pie) and participating restaurants can be found here!
Since the first event at Captain Bilbo’s in 1990, Youth Villages has raised almost a million dollars and is continually growing. With your help, they can continue to change the lives of many.
The pandemic has forced a few change ups from how Soup Sunday is regularly run, but we’re not mad at it.
This year, participants can do in-person, in-restaurant dining (following health department protocols, of course) OR Youth Villages will bring Soup Sunday straight to you! If you plan on dining in, restaurants are donating all or a portion of the proceeds from purchase of specific menu items during Soup Sunday Weekend. If you want to keep it close to home, they’ve got delicious packages from 5 local restaurants that you can purchase to be delivered and shared with just your family or family, friend, and more.
There will be a limited quantity of packages available from each restaurant. Please confirm the date(s) available for your chosen restaurant in their Package Details before completing your purchase. All the proceeds will go towards continuing to help the kids and families of Youth Villages live successfully!
