More than a dozen Oxford restaurants will bring soups to the event (last year, Mayor Pat Patterson even made a soup to share). You’ll receive a collectors bowl crafted by the University of Mississippi Mud Daubers and local potters along with bread and a bottle of water in exchange for your $15.00 donation.
The event’s purpose is to remind us all that someone’s bowl is always empty.
Some of the soups you’ll find at this year’s event include:
Chicken tortilla; loaded potato; asparagus potato; chicken noodle; shrimp and okra gumbo; steak and loaded potato; black-eye pea chicken stew; creole tomato basil; Brunswick stew; vegetarian vegetable; butternut squash bisque; broccoli and cheese; Charleston she crab; tomato basil; and jambalaya.
Restaurants that have signed up so far include:
- City Grocery
- Country Club of Oxford
- Lamar Lounge
- No Time 2 Cook
- Old Venice
- Oxford Grillehouse
- Proud Larry’s
- Taylor Grocery
- University Club
