Savor the Flavor!
Purchase tickets for Soup for Good and support two non-profits at one event.

This event provides crucial support for Guilford Art Center and the Guilford Food Bank.
Tickets are $40 per person and include a handmade ceramic bowl, plus a choice of 3 homemade soups, bread, and a split of wine.

Select your soup when you order your tickets. Choose from Lasagna Soup (with pork), Butternut Squash (vegetarian and gluten free) and Chicken Noodle.

Participants will pick up their soup and bread “to go” at GAC on Sunday, November 19
