Souper Bowls of Hope is Victoria Youth Empowerment Society’s annual Lunchtime event that brings the Citizens of Greater Victoria & the Downtown Business community together to help fund programs for youth at risk in the downtown core. Each year this Iconic event attracts approximately 400 supporters. Attendees are given the opportunity to select a free hand crafted bowl, dine on delicious soup prepared by some of Victoria’s master chefs, served by local celebrities and business owners and be serenaded with live music by local talented musicians.
Souper Bowls is supported by the talented members of the South Vancouver Island Potter’s Guild who make both ‘take home’ bowls and remarkable other clay creations for purchase. In addition, Fired Up Ceramic Studios and various schools show their support through the concept of youth helping youth by creating and donating bowls for your enjoyment. The event is also sponsored by numerous members of the business community in several different capacities.


Together, at the 2015 event, we raised over $70,000 for the Youth Empowerment Society… YES!

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2016

Our Kids appreciate your support, here’s what they have to say.
