MUNCIE, IN—PrimeTrust Federal Credit Union and Second Harvest Food Bank invite you to the eleventh annual Soup Crawl. Held in downtown Muncie during ArtsWalk, on Thursday, October 5th, from 5 pm to 8 pm, tickets are available now. Tickets are being sold online at

Soup Crawl is a fun and festive local culinary celebration that benefits Second Harvest Food Bank’s The Big Idea initiative. For just $20, Soup Crawl attendees can stroll the streets of historic downtown Muncie and sample 20 delicious soups from downtown and area restaurants, caterers, and organizations.

“PrimeTrust is a proud supporter of the work that Second Harvest Food Bank does across our community,” said Ben Polk, a PrimeTrust employee, and organizer of the event. “Last year we were thrilled to bring the event back to Downtown Muncie and were amazed by the communities support – a record $34,000+ raised to address the needs of those in our community!”

The money raised during Soup Crawl supports Second Harvest’s Big Idea initiative. The Big Idea initiative invites families to visit their child(ren)’s school once a month to engage with their teachers and staff. At the same time, they receive food and information or services from other essential community resources.

Neither Soup Crawl nor the work of Second Harvest Food Bank could happen without community support. “Thanks to strong partners like PrimeTrust, Anthem, Kroger, and so many other businesses and generous event attendees, this event will help thousands of families in need” said Robby Tompkins, Director of Philanthropy at Second Harvest. Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities are available. Please contact Robby Tompkins ( if you are interested in supporting Soup Crawl or Second Harvest.

Limited spots are still available to join as a soup vendor at the event. Utensils and cups are provided, limiting the cost of serving your best soup to that of ingredients and your time. Contact Ben Polk for additional information.
