In the 608: ‘Soup’s On!’ supporting local restaurants


MADISON, Wis. — An area organization has made it their mission to encourage you to shop local. Dane Buy Local is in the middle of its ‘Soup’s On!’ campaign.

‘Soup’s On!’ has become a new tradition of supporting local restaurants. It sold over $75,000 of soup in its first eleven weeks. The program has also donated more than 600 quarts of soup to Healthy Food for All Dane County.

To continue serving soups from local restaurants, ‘Soups On!’ is partnering with the Badger Prairie Needs Network. They’re also working with Green Cab, which is making deliveries to select locations.

It’s the hope of those involved in ‘Soup’s On!’ that people will continue to enjoy soup and support local restaurants through contact-free purchasing and pick-up or delivery.

To purchase homemade soup created by some of your favorite restaurants, visit their website weekly, Wednesday through Saturday.

The success of ‘Soups On!’ will continue through April.
