Soup Bowl

LJC Class of 2006

Originally an idea presented to Habitat for Humanity by a Senior Leadership student at Franklin College, the Soup Bowl Benefit was brought to life by a project team from Leadership Johnson County in 2006. For this event, hundreds of hand-made and decorated pottery bowls are collected from a variety of sources (potters, craftsmen, art students, civic groups, etc.). Guests select a keepsake bowl of their choosing. After their bowl is sanitized, they enjoy a wide assortment of signature soups, breads and desserts donated by area restaurants. Toss in a silent auction and some light entertainment and the end result is a wonderful afternoon of community - sharing soup with your neighbor on a cold winter night - with all proceeds going directly to the Habitat for Humanity mission of eliminating sub-standard housing across Johnson County, one family at a time! The Soup Bowl remains one of Habitat for Humanity Johnson County‚Äôs most well-attended events of the year, raising more than $200,000 since its inception.
