A gluten-free vegan soup will be available for the first time ever at USU Eastern’s Bread ‘n’ Soup Night, benefitting Carbon County Food Bank, Monday, Nov. 17.
The community is invited to enjoy an evening of food and charity, with delicious options available for everyone. Along with two other soups, Jason Olsen, an English professor at USU Eastern, will provide the gluten-free, vegan tortilla soup.
Olsen, who has been vegan for 13 years, wanted to be a part of Bread ‘n’ Soup Night and make sure the night could accommodate everyone.
“What people like about Bread ‘n’ Soup Night is the opportunity to help the community,” Olsen said. “It is a great night with the opportunity to chat with friends in a nice environment and enjoy delicious food.”
Olsen is excited to cook for the event and happy to provide for those whose dietary restrictions have prevented them from attending. He hopes this will provide more people a chance to give back.
Bread ‘n’ Soup Night runs from 5-7 pm in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center multipurpose room. Prices are $6 for adults and $4 for ages 5-17. Children 5 and under are admitted free with a paying adult. Each person will receive two tickets, good towards one bowl of soup apiece. Children 5 and under will receive one ticket.
