A Santa Fe tra­di­tion con­tin­ues on Satur­day, Jan. 30, when The Food De­pot (North­ern New Mex­ico’s food bank) presents Souper Bowl XVI from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. This year’s soup com­pe­ti­tion, auc­tion, tast­ing, and fundraiser brings more than 30 restau­rants to­gether to do bat­tle in the veg­e­tar­ian, sweet, sa­vory, and seafood cat­e­gories and to strive for the over­all “Best Soup in Santa Fe” award. The com­pet­i­tive cav­al­cade of caul­dron-cooked con­coc­tions takes place ev­ery year to help The Food De­pot stock its pantry so it can con­tinue to feed North­ern New Mex­ico’s food­in­se­cure pop­u­la­tions. Ac­cord­ing to the USDA Eco­nomic Re­search Ser­vice’s most re­cent re­port on food in­se­cu­rity in the United States— you can read it at ers.usda.gov/pub­li­ca­tions/err83— up to 14.1 per­cent of New Mex­ico house­holds ex­pe­ri­enced low or very low food se­cu­rity be­tween 2006 and 2008. A chance to help make that per­cent­age smaller— and the op­por­tu­nity to taste some damn fine potage— awaits at the Souper Bowl, which takes place at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201W. Marcy St.). Tick­ets for this event go fast, and only 1000 are avail­able this year. Ad­vanced tick­ets are $25, $10 for chil­dren ages 6 to 12, and are avail­able at The Food De­pot, 1222 Siler Road, 471-1633, and on­line at the­food­de­pot.org. Tick­ets are also avail­able at the door for $30 and $10 for chil­dren.
