Soup for the community soul

Courtesy Slow Food Lake Tahoe

Slow Food Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Food Hub present Community Soup Nights on Oct. 11 at Tahoe Donner Alder Creek Adventure Center and on Oct. 23 at bigtruck in the Pioneer Commerce Center. Both Truckee events will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For $5, participants receive soup and bread; add a salad for another $2. There’s live music and a raffle drawing at both events.

This season, soup nights will be bigger and better thanks in large part to a grant from the Truckee Core Values Fund in partnership with the Town of Truckee and Truckee Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds from each Community Soup Night will go toward Slow Food Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Food Hub’s initiatives to educate and reconnect the local community with a sustainable and regional food system. No RSVP necessary, simply arrive with a bowl, a utensil and an appetite. | slowfoodlaketahoe.org
