Soup and Bread Night Fundraiser at UWEC Produces $4,030 for Local Food Bank


Blugold Dining raised $4,030 during its Soup and Bread Night on Feb. 24 at Riverview Cafe East at the Hilltop Center, thanks to the generosity of UWEC students.

The money has been donated to Feed My People Food Bank in Eau Claire, benefiting senior citizens, single parents, the working poor, the homeless, the mentally ill and others across the Chippewa Valley. More than 14,500 people each month – 38 percent of them children – rely on food from Feed My People programs.

Students selected soups and breads as the only menu items on Feb. 24 at Riverview Cafe East in place of the regular entrees and sides inside the all-you-care-to-eat cafeteria. Sixty volunteers from student organizations served 252 gallons of soup, and the money that Blugold Dining saved in labor and food costs went to Feed My People. Soup and Bread Night has generated more than $23,000 for Feed My People since 1995.
