Volunteers Welcome

Cooking happens earlier in the day, in the commercial kitchen in the main building at the Community Centre. Volunteers are welcome to assist with preparations and cooking – come along at 9:00am on Mondays or Wednesdays and introduce yourself to Jen, Di and the crew. Brace yourself for tantalising aromas as cooking begins! 

The evening volunteers arrive at 4:45pm and help with serving and cleaning up. 

Fundraising: fusion of art & cuisine

Keep an eye out for the next Soupie fundraiser, following on from Bowls for Soupie 2023, Souped Up Soupie 2022 and Cabin Fever at Soupie 2021.

The generosity of local ceramic artisans in crafting bowls to be filled with Soupie curries and cuisine from our guest chefs (Tony Howell and Rosie Griffiths) makes for a night to remember.

We are really grateful for the massive support from community service groups, individuals and local businesses who have gotten behind these events!
