Fill Your Bowl and Your Soul at MHS Fundraiser
The high school Interact Club will host its annual ‘Soup for the Soul’ fundraiser this weekend.
The event, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, will benefit Philabundance, one of the region’s largest food banks and hunger relief organizations.
Event co-chair Shannon Keeler said she and her classmates are hoping to outdo last year’s Soup for the Soul, which raised $2,000 for the Food Bank of South Jersey.
“Every person that comes can make a difference,” said Keeler, “because there’s a lot of hungry people … We’ve worked hard. I hope we’re able to donate a lot to Philabundance.”
A ticket—$9 for adults, $6 for kids—gets you a refillable soup bowl and bread, as well as desserts and refreshments. There’ll be music, a silent auction and an assortment of gift baskets that will be raffled off as well.
A number of area businesses are once again providing food and support for the cause, including Passariello’s, Blue Fig Cafe, Bacio, Al Dente, Ralph’s Market, Iron Hill, Bobby Chez, La Rosa and others.
Even if helping the hungry isn’t your thing, well, it’s hard to beat $9 for all-you-can-eat soup and bread.
“You can’t really go wrong with that,” said Keeler.
