The Hoosier Hills Food Bank held the 24th Annual Soup Bowl Benefit on Sunday in the Monroe County Convention Center. 42 local restaurants, including Runcible Spoon and Upland Brewing Co., make soups to raise money for Hoosier Hills. More than 20 local potters made handmade bowls, which were for sale at the soup bowl.

“It’s usually about a couple months of preparation, but really a few intense days that come together and put it all together,” said Jake Bruner, Hoosier Hills director of development and administration. “The soup bowl is usually about a 100,000 dollars fundraiser. Overall it’s our largest fundraiser of the year.”
