Breaking the previous record set last year, the College of Eastern Utah's Bread 'N Soup Night donation to the Carbon County Food Bank will be $3,805.00 for this year's activities.
This amount surpasses any donation made by CEU in the last 11 years the event has been going on. This brings the grand total of $23,533.59 that CEU has given the food bank during the past decade.
Organizers of the event say that over 1,150 people from all over the community attended the events and were able to be a part of this worthy cause.
Becky Archibald, director of food service, once again stepped up to put together the meals.She also asked for vendor donations, prepared specialty soups to accommodate specific dietary needs, and made particular arrangements for students on a meal plan to participate. Her husband Tony also donated his time to make all of the soup. Many other volunteers also helped out in capacities from set-up and take-down to playing the piano, and helping out on garbage detail.
