Soup Crawl 2020 Cancellation Annoucement
PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union Announces Cancellation of the Tenth Annual Soup Crawl Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
In the interest of public health, PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union announced today that it has cancelled the tenth annual Soup Crawl scheduled to be held in downtown Muncie on Thursday, October 1, 2020.
“Our priority is the health and safety of our local community,” said event organizer Vickie Copley. “In accordance with state and local guidance regarding the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and in an abundance of caution to protect the well-being of all Soup Crawl attendees, participants, sponsors, vendors and volunteers, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s tenth annual Soup Crawl celebration.”
Soup Crawl is a community culinary celebration that benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank Big Idea Program. Studies show that 1 in 5 Children in the area served by Second Harvest are food insecure. School food distributions have proven to be an excellent opportunity to bring parents and guardians into the school setting with their children, creating stronger bonds with teachers and other school officials. Second Harvest’s Big Idea Initiative works with its school partners to ensure a consistent, manageable food distribution program that connects students, families, teachers, and community allies.
Soup Crawl organizers regret that they will not be able to continue the 9-year tradition of celebrating the community together to benefit a very worthy cause. Copley is grateful for the continued support of sponsors, participating restaurants, volunteers, and community members and is looking forward to coming together for the tenth-annual celebration of Soup Crawl in 2021.
“We’ve been incredibly proud to host Soup Crawl in our community for the past nine years, bringing together local restaurants and residents to celebrate food and support Second Harvest Food Bank,” said Copley. “While we are extremely disappointed to announce the cancellation of this year’s event, we look forward to making Soup Crawl bigger and better when we return for our tenth anniversary in October, 2021. In lieu of our event, we would encourage supporters to consider making a donation to Second Harvest Food Bank at www.curehunger.org to support their extraordinary efforts to provide food for the community – especially during this difficult time.”
