Souper Bowl Lunch

The Raw Carrot Gourmet Soup enterprise, an outreach of the Mount Forest United Church, is “tackling poverty one bowl of soup at a time” and on Saturday held a successful Souper Bowl Lunch at the Bye home just outside of town. Serving the soup, above, were: Geri Wilkinson, Brenda Rawlings, Elsa Mann of Night and Day Pottery, Janice Benson and Carolyn Bye. The program, launched last September, is a social enterprise non-profit business with a social purpose of providing part-time employment for people who are disabled and living on disability benefits. The group, with co-directors Janice Benson and Brenda Rawlings, makes and sells gourmet frozen soup. Seventy people attended the Sept. 22 fundraiser, sharing a soup luncheon and taking home their very own Raw Carrot soup bowl,  custom created by Night and Day Pottery. The event also featured a silent auction and bake sale. The soup can be purchased on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings by going to the back door of the church. It is sold most Sundays after church downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. It is also available for purchase at several local businesses. “We live in a wonderful, caring community who are all helping make the Raw Carrot a success,” Benson said.  Photo by Lynne Turner
