Convivium Urban Farmstead is hosting a special fundraising event to raise awareness about poverty and food insecurity in our community. Co-owner, Leslie Shalabi, says they are partnering with Riverbend Food Bank for SOUPer Sunday on January 26th. Paticipants will select and keep a handmade, ceramic bowl made by a local artist and help themselves to soups and breads donated by the different local restaurants. Salabi says there will be a short program but it’s mostly it’s a fun event. Proceeds from the event, which runs from 4 pm to 6 pm, will go to Riverbend Food Bank and Convivium Urban Farmstead to support programming for low income individuals in Dubuque.
