Oct. 27 soup supper, auction to benefit pantry
NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty Community Pantry will host its fifth Annual Stone Soup Supper and Silent Auction on Sunday, Oct. 27, from 5 until 7 p.m., at the South Slope Community Room, 980 N. Front St., North Liberty. Event sponsors are Hills Bank and Trust Company, South Slope Cooperative Communications, JM Swank, and University of Iowa Community Credit Union.
Enjoy a variety of soups donated by some favorite local restaurants including: Red’s Alehouse; Kava House; Blue Bird Café; Panera; Matt Zacek, and more. The meal includes soup bread, salads, desserts, beverages, live music and kid’s activities. Cost is $10 for adults; $5 for children 12 and under. The silent auction will offer varied gift baskets and gift certificates from local vendors.
The old folk tale, Stone Soup, involves hungry travelers who persuade local townsfolk to give them food by introducing them to stone soup. They start out with a stone in a pot of water. Villagers add vegetables, meat and spices until they end up with a nourishing and delicious soup for all to enjoy. In the spirit of the Stone Soup tale, pantry supporters look forward to the community coming together to help feed our neighbors.
All funds raised will benefit the North Liberty Community Pantry. For information, contact executive director Tina DuBois at 319-626-2711, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.northlibertycommunitypantry.org.
