Apro­ject has been adopted by many com­mu­ni­ties to fight hunger in their very own neigh­bor­hood. This event in­vites you to share in a bowl of soup to sup­port those in need.

Sev­eral hun­dred beau­ti­ful hand­crafted bowls have been made by lo­cal pot­ters. Each bowl is hand painted and unique. Some of the bowls have been dec­o­rated by well-known artists and lo­cal dig­ni­taries. De­li­cious home­made soups and breads have been made by lo­cal chefs. You are in­vited to come choose one of the hun­dreds of bowls, full it with soup, grab a home­made bun and en­joy. You then take the bowl home as a re­minder that your con­tri­bu­tion has gone di­rectly into your com­mu­nity. All the money we raise goes to Len­noxville Ele­men­tary School Break­fast Pro­gram, The Corner­stone Food Bank and the BU/CRC Pas­toral Fund.
