Sixty Nine Samples of Soup (or Dessert)

2016 Albuquerque fundraiser (photo: Roadrunner Food Bank)
Chefs from 69 restaurants in New Mexico are contributing their culinary skills to help end hunger in our state on the last two weekends of January. These two Souper Bowl events, planned in conjunction with the NFL title game, help our state's two largest food banks, Food Depot in Santa Fe and Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque, to raise funds to provide hundreds of thousands of meals to the most vulnerable families and individuals around the state. Here is information about the two events:
