The 30th annual Souper Saturday will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church on October 9, 2021, from 11: a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The sponsor is the Isle of Wight Christian Outreach Program.
There are three crucial changes to observe to this year’s event:
- There is only a drive-through service to pick up your order. There will be two lanes to help alleviate traffic flow;
- Churches or individuals will sell no tickets;
- The event is from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Every Fall, members of churches throughout the county donate soups and desserts for a community lunch. In addition, we purchase ham at a discount from Smithfield Foods and rolls for ham biscuits from MBK Distributors.
The Christian Outreach Program is the coalition of area churches in Isle of Wight that perform cooperative outreach work in the community. Both the physical efforts and resources of the Christian Outreach Program multiply when churches unite with the mission to spread God’s love and help. Good examples of cooperative efforts are the Dental Program, Food Pantry, Furniture Program, Food for Thought, and the Home Repair Program. Souper Saturday is another cooperative program that funds an outreach project that helps people. All the money raised is donated to the Isle of Wight Social Services Department specifically for their Fuel Assistance Program for those in our community who fall “through the cracks” between the existing aid programs.
