Soup & Bowl Benefit
Fonta Flora is hosting the first annual Soup Competition on Sunday, February 26th, 2023 at our Whippoorwill Farm location from noon until four in the evening. This is a warm and friendly competition between soup connoisseurs, amateur and professional, for the benefit of the folks at Meeting Place Mission, whilst bolstering local artists in the community.
The goal of this event is to warm hearts, souls, and tummies, learn new soup secrets, and uplift our community.
There are three opportunities to participate and help us make a difference:
- Enter into the Soup & Bowl and bring your best pot of soup to be enjoyed.
- Donate one of your hand-thrown bowls
- Purchase a ticket ahead of time, and help us get a head count of how many people to prepare soup for! Tickets are $25 and include a locally made bowl (Hallyburton Pottery, West Union Art Studios) 10 tasting tickets, and three voting tickets:
A good bite of soup on a cold day can arguably save a life, and our goal with this event is to hopefully do the same.
Here is what $25 can accomplish through Meeting Place Mission:
*Safe night stay at the shelter
*Fresh fruits and Veggies for 3 weeks at the emergency shelter
*One week’s groceries at a FACES Transitional Home
*Month’s worth of coffee, cocoa, and snacks
*3 meals at the emergency shelter for all guests
*School supplies for FACES Children
*5 personal hygiene kits
*Coat, Hat, Gloves for one person
