Big Soup in Pittsburgh

Winner, most unusual soup bowl contest

Winner, smallest soup spoon contest














But the aspect of Big Soup that touches me most deeply is the commitment to helping others. In their tenth year, the Neelys decided to add a charity component to the festivities, and quietly, with no fanfare, invited people to make a donation to the Food Bank if they wished. And that tradition has continued. In 2018, they collected more than $4000, which was then matched by a local business whose owners wish to be anonymous.  Melissa estimates that all told, they have been able to give  more than $80,000 to the food bank.
