Event Description

The South Side Soup Contest was created by the South Side Local Development Company in 2004 as way to showcase what the South Side retail and business community had to offer. From the beginning, the event proceeds supported the Brashear Association and the operation of its food pantry program. This year the event will benefit not only the Brashear Association, but the South Side Chamber of Commerce. The event is operated and organized by members of both organizations along with almost 100 volunteers from around the Pittsburgh community.


The Brashear Association


The Brashear Association supports and enriches the lives of many residents in the neighborhoods of South Pittsburgh, thereby helping to build strong families and communities. Among their services, the Brashear Association operates two community food pantries located in South Side and Arlington. The Brashear Association’s food pantry provides food and other commodities to over 1,000 low-income individuals and families every week at its two pantry locations in South Side and Arlington. The average pantry order provides households with enough food for 10 meals per person. Since this time last year, the agency’s pantries provided 72,000 meals, reallocating approximately $216,000 for families to use for other critical needs. The South Side Soup Contest provides over 1,200 items for its food pantry.

The South Side Chamber of Commerce


The South Side Chamber of Commerce is the primary business organization that represents and promotes the interests of the South Side business community at the local, city and state levels.
