Annual LPGE Soup Bowl Supper
March 18 from 4:30-7:00 pm.
@ LPGE secondary school
For many years, students from the Long Prairie-Grey Eagle Honor Society have been hosting a fundraising soup supper for our local food shelf every spring. Featuring the pottery artistry of 3D Art students and their teacher, Erin Gillie, the first wave of arrivals can take home a pottery bowl handmade by our local artisans. March is the month which we traditionally try to give back to our community by contributing to the local food shelf or local food pantry. For many years, there has been a matching fund that matches all contributions donated in the month of March. Thus your donation makes twice as much impact! This year, the soup bowl supper will feature homemade soups from Ms. Hanson’s Foods classes, including a hearty stew, cream of potato (meatless), vegan vegetable barley, savory ham and bean, and a chicken/turkey with dumplings. Featuring scratch-made dinner rolls as well as dessert, we’d love to have you join us in our battle against hunger on March 18 from 4:30-7:00 pm.
