“It was a great day the Penticton Soupateria for Souperbowl number five,” said Wayne McDougall, Soupateria director. “We’ve had a lot of people fed with some really good soup. It’s just been terrific.”

The celebrity panel of judges included MLA Dan Ashton and Mayor John Vassalaki. In total, 130 people were served lunch, which included the soup. The assisting chefs were Penticton Secondary School students Kierra Upshaw and Ki Peterson.

“It’s very important for homeless people, especially because they have less than we do and need help,” said Vassalaki. “We need to help more and find a proper location indoors so that we can help those folks out. Being out on the street is not the answer.”

The Souperbowl is an entertaining way to let people know what happens at the Soupateria, while raising its profile in the community, according to the organizers.

The competition also aims to stimulate volunteerism and increase awareness and acceptance of people in the community who need the Soupateria.
