On May 18, Arnerich Massena’s I AM Learning Partnership will be partnering with Imperfect Produce to host “Soup for the Soul,” a school/community carnival to benefit the Oregon Food Bank. This student-led fair will take place at Irvington Elementary (1320 NE Brazee St.) from 3-5pm on Friday, May 18, and is open to community members with a $5 entry fee. Event-goers can enjoy crafts for sale, raffles, games, and soup (details below) – and all proceeds will help the Oregon Food Bank in its mission to end hunger. To top it off, Tony and Christine Arnerich will match the carnival funds, doubling our donation to the Oregon Food Bank!
Carnival-goers will enjoy free soup samples, and will get to make their own dry soup mix to take home – they’ll also take home fresh vegetables for their soup, courtesy of Imperfect Produce. For those who sign up for Imperfect Produce delivery at the fair, they’ll receive a $5 discount on their first box, and Imperfect Produce will donate an additional $5 to the Oregon Food Bank. It’s not just the soup; the raffle items are hot too: gift certificates from Renata, Woodsman’s Tavern, McMenamin’s, and Human Bean Coffee; t-shirts; and a soup-making toy set! The carnival will have plenty of family fun too, with games like “Milk Mustache” and “Egg and Toast Flip,” relay races, and a tattoo booth.
Come enjoy Soup for the Soul – we look forward to seeing you there!
