The annual Soup’s On Along The Lakeshore! event features more than dozen soups, breads and desserts from area restaurants, served by volunteers, community leaders and media celebrities.

Each attendee gets a hand-painted souvenir bowl to take home, which serves as a reminder that hunger exists every day along the Lakeshore.

It takes place Wednesday, March 8 at 6 p.m. at the Trillium Events Center, 17246 Van Wagoner Road, Spring Lake.

Soup’s On Along The Lakeshore! raises funds for the Muskegon food pantry of God’s Kitchen, a program of Catholic Charities West Michigan.
