Davidson and Garrard’s  1st Annual “Souper Bowl”, a feast of soups BENEFITING Campus Kitchen at Washington and Lee’s Backpack Program for Lexington and Rockbridge County children
Over 12 Local Restaurants and Caterers will contribute soup for sampling at Evans Dining Hall, Sunday January 27th from 11am-2pm.  The “Souper Bowl” will feature live entertainment and a festive atmosphere while highlighting each partner restaurant.  Participating Restaurants include:  Red Hen, Southern Inn, Blue Sky Bakery, Healthy Foods Co-op, Salernos, Sweet Treats, Sheridan Livery, Brixx, eCafe, Nikos, Bistro On Main, Full Circle Catering and The Lexington Golf and Country Club.  Suggested donation is $10 for students, $15 for adults and max. $40 per family.  

Lori Frascati, Director of Client Service at Davidson & Garrard, and one of the organizers of the event, noted, “Campus Kitchen at Washington and Lee’s Backpack Program started in 2009 as a partnership between Campus Kitchen and Natural Bridge Elementary School, and has expanded to cover all seven elementary schools in the Rockbridge area. This vital program delivers backpacks filled with non-perishable food to the schools and targets children who are eligible for free or reduced lunches.”  Jenny Davidson, another event organizer and coordinator of Student Service Learning at W&L, remarked, “Children are guaranteed lunch Monday through Friday and now by sending food home with them in backpacks on Friday night, CKWL ensures they have food over the weekend.  The program provides snacks for over 400 local elementary school students who deal with hunger on a regular basis.  Please join us in tackling childhood hunger by participating in the 1st Annual Souper Bowl.”  W&L students are also heavily involved in the program.  "My involvement with the Campus Kitchens has helped shape my career at Washington and Lee. It has helped me connect to the community in which I live. The program has increased awareness of hunger issues amongst students, community members, and works to combat a much larger scale problem", commented student event organizer, Kathryn Marsh-Soloway.  

Students, who receive the backpacks, as a percentage of the student body, range from 20.12% at Harrington Waddell Elementary to 64.21 % at Natural Bridge Elementary.  The average of all elementary schools in the program is 45%.

The organizers hope the event will raise thousands of dollars to benefit the program, an essential part of tackling childhood hunger locally.
