Saturday, October 27 marks the ninth year for the Cambridge Mayor’s Souper Sampler in support of Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More (CSC). I’ve been involved with the event since its inception, and it really is a good way to spend an autumn afternoon with many delicious soups.
“More than a dozen local restaurants and caterers are donating soup to help local seniors and adults with disabilities live at home with independence and dignity,” said Will Pace, CSC’s Executive Director. “It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the generosity of local vendors, businesses and partners willing to support our community.”
The family-friendly event takes place at Cambridge City Hall from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Award-winning flamenco guitarist, Juneyt, is providing entertainment and kids can expect an extra treat this year.
“With Halloween around the corner, kids of all ages are encouraged to wear their Halloween costume and do some early trick-or-treating. We anticipate the kids’ corner will be bustling with excitement,” said Pace.
CSC works with more than 1,500 volunteers, donors, funders and community partners to help more than 7,500 seniors and adults with disabilities live at home with independence and dignity. Services include: Meals on Wheels, Transportation, Grocery Shopping, Gentle Exercise, Falls Prevention, Community Dining, Friendly Visiting, Reassurance Calls, Home Help and Caregiver Support.
Vendors compete for the Best Soup Trophy, which is judged by a celebrity panel, and the People’s Choice Award, which attendees vote for using their spare change.
Current vendors include Beertown Cambridge, Blackshop Restaurant and Wine Bar, The Bruce Craft House, B@THEMUSEUM, The Easy Pour Wine Bar, EVO Kitchen, The Hungry Olive, Langdon Hall, Little Mushroom Catering, Melville Café, Old Marina Restaurant, and Zoup! Cambridge.
Starbucks is bringing their famous roast for coffee loving attendees, and the CSC Kitchen is back for the fourth year in a row, actively participating since they opened the doors of their own kitchen facility where they now prepare up to 350 hot, nutritious meals each weekday for their food programs.
Tickets are $5 per person at the door and includes two samples. Additional samples can be purchased for $1 each. All-You-Can-Eat Soup tickets are $20 per person and include a free reusable water bottle.
