USU Eastern’s 13th annual Bread ‘n’ Soup Night to benefit the Carbon County Food Bank will begin Monday, Nov. 7 and continue consecutive Mondays until Thanksgiving (Nov. 7, 14 and 21).
USU Eastern student, Amanda Van Wagoner, of Mapleton and SUN Center student in charge of the event, notes that “because of the way the holidays fall this year, we are only able to offer three nights of Bread ‘n’ Soup.” She especially encourages attendees to mark their calendars and “come out early” so as not to miss any of the great meals.
Eastern Utah’s Dining Service staff, under the direction of Becky Archibald, volunteers its time each Monday to create three delicious soups, including one vegetarian offering (and several which are gluten free and vegan) with rolls and butter. Van Wagoner notes that attendees should look forward to some of their favorites like chicken noodle and cream of potato on the menu again this year.
Last year, USU Eastern’s Bread ‘N Soup Night donated a record high $5,000 to the Carbon County Food Bank, making a grand total over its 12 years of existence to more than $28,000.
Menus for Bread ‘N Soup Night: Nov. 7—cream of potato (vegetarian), chicken noodle, tomato basil (gluten free/vegan); Nov. 14—cheesy broccoli (vegetarian), chicken noodle, beef stew (gluten free); and Nov. 21—tomato vegetable rice (vegetarian/gluten free), chicken noodle, clam chowder and chili.
All are welcome to attend between 5-6:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center. Prices are $6 for adults, $6 for students 15 and over, and $4 for students 5 -14 years old. Children under five are admitted free. For the price of admission, each person receives two tickets, each good toward one bowl of soup. Additional tickets may be purchased for $2 per bowl.
