As fall brings a dip in temperatures, Urban Ministries of Wake County invites the community to warm up at its annual Stone Soup Supper 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, at N.C. State University’s Talley Center in Raleigh. All proceeds from the supper support Urban Ministries’ work to fight poverty in Wake County, and you can choose to dine in or get your soup to go.
For a donation of $25, you’ll get a piece of handmade pottery donated by the Triangle Potters Guild and a chance to participate in the Souperior Chef competition, including tasting artisan soup recipes from Wake County chefs. Admission for children younger than age 12 is $5. Soup to go will be available for $10 a quart. Besides having dinner, you can also shop for pottery handmade by the Triangle Potters Guild.
This is the 11th year that Urban Ministries is hosting the supper, and this year, its goal is to raise at least $45,000, which would fill its food pantry for four months. Urban Ministries serves 27,000 people each year, including 9,000 children.
