March 21 – Soup Bowls for Hunger

It’s time for the 13th Annual DKG Soup Bowls for Hunger Event!

This wonderful event will be held on Thursday, March 21st, 2019 within Rutland Senior High School’s Cafeteria. Enjoy a bowl of soup, crackers, a roll or two, dessert, and beverage. All of the soup bowls are made by local school students and professional VT potters, and you get to take your bowl home at the end of the night!

This event is sponsored for the 9th year by Delta Kappa Gamma Society of women educators, and there will be two sittings (4:45 PM and 6:15 PM), both with top quality bowls to choose from. A raffle for various donated items will also be available on the side!

Tickets are just $20.00 per person and must be purchased in advance, beginning Friday, March 1st. Call Rutland High School’s Main Office at (802) 773-1955 or Ann Bannister at (802) 747-0569 to order your tickets. Tickets may also be purchased at Phoenix Books in Downtown Rutland, Vermont. Cash or checks can be made payable to Soup Bowls for Hunger only, please!

About:
Rutland Meals Challenge Packaging Event
Since 2013, the Rutland Meals Challenge has added many meals to the local emergency food system. We have provided meals to a dozen local food shelves, including the Community Cupboard of Rutland and the Vermont Food Bank. This year they would like to add 35,000 servings to that total, and need over 200 people to make this event a success! There are opportunities for set-up, breakdown, packaging shifts, box builders, carton hauling & stacking, and movers & shakers (who refill the food bins as we work).

Each volunteer must sign up individually, even if part of a team. There will be several shifts: 9:30-11a.m.; 11-12:30 p.m.; 12:30-2 p.m.; 2-3:30 p.m.

Fast-paced, easy, fun, creating goodwill, and friendships for people of all ages. If you are interested contact Tracy at Grace Church Office or sign up directly by visiting: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0f4baeac22abf94-rutland3

Sign up individually but also indicate you are from Grace Church.
