SOUPALICIOUS is a nation-wide event created by the Compost Council of Canada to help support the Plant-a-Row Grow-a-Row campaign that urges citizens to grow food for those in need.

Community Connections’ Food Security Coordinator Melissa Hemphill brings this event to Revelstoke for the third year to highlight our talented local chefs, to bring people together with food and to support the food bank.

SOUPALICIOUS Revelstoke is a zero-waste event. Visitors were urged to bring their own bowl and spoon to decrease the need for disposable options. All waste was collected by the North Columbia Environmental Society and sent to Spa Hills Composting in Salmon Arm.
