Subterra Restaurant, in conjunction with various departments of George Fox University and its students, has funded the start of a community soup program to raise awareness of local food insecurity while celebrating the diversity of society through food and art.
Back in December of 2015 Subterra donated 25% of its gross proceeds generated during a lunch week as seed money to start a program to buy raw product for making hearty soups and housebaked breads. We were able to accumulate over $800!
Soup and salad will be served in Francis Square in downtown Newberg during First Friday Artwalks throughout the winter, commencing Friday, February 5. Students from George Fox have made beautiful ceramic bowls for the occasion and will help with the marketing of the program and assisting in serving the meals.
Meals will be given away at no cost, or on a Pay-What-You-Want model for those wishing to donate to the future of the program. Ceramic bowls will also be available for purchase.
We plan to be open for First Friday Artwalk for February 5, March 4 and April 1 of 2016. Looking into the future, we hope this program will start to fund itself, and continue to feed those in need while integrating society in an artistic venue.
