Community Soup Night continues Tuesday at Full Belly Deli

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Tahoe Food Hub and Slow Food Lake Tahoe recently announced the return of Community Soup Night this fall.

Last spring saw the first installment of Community Soup Night, which was a re-invention of Project MANA's Stone Soup. Each night produced a great turnout and amazing support from our mountain community.

Community Soup Night brings people of all ages together to enjoy a savory and affordably priced meal made from fresh, sustainably grown ingredients, while enjoying an evening with friends and family.

It will be held at Full Belly Deli in Truckee on Tuesdy, Nov. 4, and at Mamasake at Squaw Valley on Nov. 18.

It's only $5 for soup and bread, plus there will be live music and a raffle with great prizes at both events.

This event is a collaboration of two local, nonprofit organizations committed to creating a more food-focused community.
