Brief Description of Event: 
On the second Saturday in October, COP sponsors a community soup lunch to raise money to provide financial assistance for wintertime heating for those who may not otherwise have been able to afford it. SOUPER SATURDAY has become a tradition in Smithfield. On the second Saturday in October, COP sponsors a community soup lunch to raise money to provide financial assistance for wintertime heating for those who may not otherwise have been able to afford it. Hundreds of people from local churches make large pots of soup, desserts and other dishes which are brought to Trinity FAC. Soup lunches are then sold to the community, raising thousands of dollars for this cause. We really don’t plan on specific amounts – people contribute what food they wish – and somehow, we always have just the right amount. In 2012, we had over 1200 attend with only a very small amount of soup leftover. Volunteers are needed to bring soup, ham rolls, dessert. Volunteers are also needed for setup, serving and cleanup.
