UW-Eau Claire raises money for local food bank

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- UW-Eau Claire is set to raise thousands of dollars for a local food bank.

The University held its 19th annual "Soup and Bread" night Wednesday. The meal was served by volunteers from student organizations.

Students have selected soups, breads, and drinks to replace the usual evening and late-night menus.

All of the money saved in labor and food costs will be donated to Feed My People Food Bank.

"I believe it's important because there are many ways to do so but it's super beneficial to the committee and also Feed My People, whose also able to give to so many community tables around the area, that they're able to do that.," says Aaron Polzin, Chair of the Dining Committee.

Organizers say they hope to raise more than $2,000.

The event has been a campus tradition since 1995.
