Dining Services’ third annual Soup for the Soul event, held Thursday in CC Commons, sold over 100 bowls and raised close to $900 for The Cupboard, Penn College’s on-campus food pantry. For an $8 donation, participants enjoyed a meal that included chicken tortilla or cheddar broccoli soup, roll, beverage, dessert, goodie bag and a beautifully handcrafted bowl. As in past years, the bowls were made and donated by students in instructor David A. Stabley’s ceramics classes.
