Soup and Bread Program
Fundraiser for The Resource Connection Food Bank in San Andreas
Back in March of 2020 when Covid stay at home orders kicked in, Ron Pieretti at Prospect 772 Winery wanted to provide an offering to the community during a scary and challenging time. He also wanted to help out a couple of small local businesses just starting out stay afloat. So he reached out to Todd Gunter and myself and said let's provide an affordable offering of soup and bread for a reasonable price to the community. Any and all profits from his end would go directly to the food bank. This program became very popular and the community really has rallied around it. We suggest a $15 donation for a quart of Ali's Eats Soup and 1/2 a loaf of Todd's Sourdough bread and that covers the cost of the food, and a few dollars go to The Resource Connection. When we enter the summer months, we switch to gourmet salads and focaccia.
The community has been incredibly generous and those who can afford it, have been occasionally donating extra. In 2020 we raised $5200 for the local food bank. Because this has been so well received, and the food bank still needs help more thank ever, we are continuing this program again in 2021. You can check out my Food Event Calendar for the next soup to be offered. Or you can follow Prospect 772 or Ali's Eats on Facebook for updates. You pre-order must be placed sometime between Monday-Thursday at 5:00 pm, and you can pick up your soup and bread at Prospect 772 Winery at 772 Appaloosa Rd., Angels Camp on Saturday and Sunday between 12-5 pm.
You can text Ron to pre-order your soup and bread at (510)867-9106.
