This is Souper

At the next Project Host Community Dinner, Jan. 31, 6:30 p.m., each guest will receive a handmade pottery bowl created by JL Mann High School students in honor of the empty bowls many food insecure people in our community often face. The dinner will be held in the soup kitchen dining room and will feature a special “Souper-bowl” menu. These regular community dinners provide training opportunities for the nonprofit’s CC Pearce Culinary School students and all proceeds benefit the many programs offered. Dinners have limited seating and require a reservation. Beer and wine at the cash bar are generously provided by The Community Tap. Register here.
