Sunday ‘super’ in more ways than one

PUHI — Susan Pittman has been serving soup for at least 10 years, and today will be no exception.

“She’ll be unloading the kiln Wednesday morning, and there are a couple more bowls that need glazing before the final firing,” said Linn Ellingson, Pittman’s sister and one of the workers at the Kilohana Clayworks.

Ellingson said her sister always puts aside a limited number of hand-made ceramic bowls for their “Souper Bowl Sunday” event where patrons, for a nominal donation, get to keep the bowl filled with soup prepared by the culinary staff at Gaylord’s.

But because the bowls are hand-made, people can come in early and make their choices, Ellingson said.

“We’ll give them a ticket and on Sunday starting at 11:30 a.m., they can come back either with their bowl, or bring in their own container so they’ll have soup before the kickoff,” Ellingson said. “Diners can either enjoy the soup on property, or take it with them to their own Super Bowl destination.”

The event kicks off today at Kilohana Clayworks at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m.

A $20 donation buys donors the triple-win situation — a hand-made bowl from Clayworks, soup from Gaylord’s and the satisfaction of helping feed Kaua‘i’s hungry.

Tickets are available at the Kaua‘i Food Bank or Kilohana Clayworks.

All proceeds go to the Kaua‘i Food Bank.
