Community Soup Night partners with the
Alpenglow Winter Film Series for Soup & a Movie on February 8th
Tahoe Food Hub and Slow Food Lake Tahoe are hosting a “pop-up” Community Soup Night on Thursday, February 8th before the Alpenglow Winter Film Series at Squaw’s Olympic Valley Lodge. Soup’s on from 5-6:30 pm followed by the show at 7pm.
“Community Soup Night and the Alpenglow Winter Film Series are all about bringing community together,” comments Susie Sutphin, Director of the Tahoe Food Hub. “Bringing the two events together under one roof on the same night, will be the ultimate community event.”
Whether it is date night, catching up with friends or family night-out, Soup & a Movie is affordable and fun! Community Soup Night provides a warm, affordable and delicious meal made from fresh, local and sustainably-grown ingredients sourced by the Tahoe Food Hub. The Alpenglow Winter Film Series inspires, motivates and educates the Lake Tahoe community on adventures stateside and overseas. Soup and bread are just $5 and a salad can be added for only $2 more. Soup will be served from 5:00-6:30pm. The film series is FREE but its incredible raffle raises money for the featured non-profit beneficiary of the night which happened to be Tahoe Food Hub. The show starts at 7pm.
“We actively seek to pair with local non-profits making a tangible difference in our North Lake community,” shared Brendan Madigan, owner of Alpenglow Sports. “We are excited to welcome Tahoe Food Hub and their partner, Slow Food Lake Tahoe, to host their popular Community Soup Night in collaboration with the Winter Film Series on February 8th for even more non-profit fundraising goodness!”
Soupers are not obligated to stay for the show but highly encouraged as renowned ski mountaineer, Hilaree O’Neil, will share stories of her endless winter in 2017. The Soup will be a Thai Curry vegetable prepared by Squaw Valley’s Executive Chef, Tiffany Swan. It will be both vegan and gluten free. Drink specials will be available for purchase. And guests are encouraged to ‘Bring Your Own Bowl’ in an effort to reduce waste (there will be compostable options for guests unable to bring a bowl). During soup time, attendees will enjoy the sounds of local musician, Anne Mare Sheridan. Proceeds from each Community Soup Night will go towards Tahoe Food Hub and Slow Food Lake Tahoe’s initiatives to educate and reconnect the local community to the importance of a sustainable and local food system.
