Free Bowl of Soup

THE STORY:

What is Free Bowl of Soup (.org)?!

Over a decade ago the sailboat racing team “Free Bowl of Soup” was born in Portland, Oregon. The desire to redeem our karma after telling a joke about the name being serious (it isn’t) has turned into fun and positive opportunity for our friends to help raise over $42,500 for Oregon Food Bank! Good times, and amazing generosity. As ‘the Soup’ has grown from a J/24 to a J/105, so have the challenges we’ve taken on, culminating in the Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii in July 2014, followed by multiple Oregon Offshore, Swiftsure and other great PNW races. We hope you’ll join in our adventure. Please join the fun here by donating, and come along for the ride on Facebook. Join us on the Columbia River and on the shores at ColumbiaCrossings in Portland, OR on August 20th! Indicate your boat name (other than the Soup) and be in the running to win Oregon Food Bank Free Bowl of Soup "Regatta" (solely based on donations).

Our Mission

To turn a great line in a classic move, that became a funny boat name, into an opportunity to provide Free Bowls of Soup to those in need with our friend's help

Who You’ll be Helping

All proceeds will go to help the Oregon Food Bank, or to a local food charity of your choice if desired. Please visit their website to see what a great organization and cause to support. How you can Help?

Our Goal!

Together raise 25,000 Free Bowls of Soup (Note: A Bowl of Soup is equivalent to a can of soup, or $.20)
