THE DAY OF THE SOUP is a FREE, FAIR FOOD event with soups made by various individuals or groups in our community, representing a RICH MIX of cultures, religions, experiences and stories to tell!
As well as being able to freely enjoy the food, you can discover simple ways to make healthy meals, share your own culture, and meet others over a bowl—or two or three—of soup!
Whenever there’s a celebration or a special gathering, food is likely to lie on the table! We love to make the most of this—and help to bring people together in our community! Just like SOUP, we’re a bubbling, simmering colourful bowl of loveliness and flavour! ENJOY!
A Bubbling, Simmering Mix!
Discover the story behind each soup, why it’s important and where it’s from. Tell us your own SOUP STORIES too! What simmering memories do you have? Share your soup inspirations!
Whether it’s memories of your MUM serving up a warm soup when you were feeling ill, a joyful RELIGIOUS or CULTURAL celebration, or a taste of HOME—every soup has a STORY to tell!
Share your SOUP STORIES at the event or follow us on Twitter at @thedayofthesoup
Every Bowl will Blow your Mind!
In the UK, we throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year, the majority of which could have been eaten. It's costing us £12.5bn a year and is bad for the environment too. Each of us throws away on average 110kg of food a year. SOUP is a great way to use up all those random items that may have otherwise been thrown away!
Shopping locally, growing your own, eating organically grown and vegetarian food, and using up surplus food is all good for us and our family, our community and city, the environment and the world! The soups served at our events represent all these different ways of shopping, cooking and eating!
