We had a great time celebrating 25 years of providing hope and improving lives in our community at our Souper Supper 2013. Even better, we made almost $30,000 for the Federal Way Community Caregiving Network! That is wonderful!
Thank you all for supporting our Community Meals and Emergency Services Programs and helping Federal Way's needy citizens...all while listening to some fantastic speakers and enjoying a wide variety of "souper" soups.
We hope to see you at Souper Supper 2014! In the meantime, take a look below at some photos from our 2013 event.

Souper Supper began in 2000 when the Network realized the community's low-income population needed more help than the FWCCN could provide on its own. The supper is the largest contributing fundraiser to our annual budget, and goes a long way towards helping us complete our mission.
Each year on the last Thursday of October, members of the community gather at Steel Lake Presbyterian Church for this fabulous, fun event. Souper Supper attendees are treated to over a dozen varieties of soup, all donated by local restaurateurs and grocers. Cornbread, rolls, beverages and desserts are also provided. And to add to the fun, lots of raffle prizes are awarded during the evening!
This is the Caregiving Network’s main fundraiser. Proceeds support our Emergency Services and Meals Programs which assist people with low, often poverty-level, incomes with food, rent, limited motel stays, gasoline and other basic needs for daily survival.
Our goal is to help people stay in their homes, stave off hunger and provide some of the necessities that most people take for granted.
