Hiram College

As has been the tradition for the past 31 years, students, faculty, staff and community members will have the opportunity to come together to help those in need with a weekly meal of bread and soup.

Bread and Soup begins tonight, January 10, from 5-7 p.m. in Dix Dining Hall. The meal will take place every Thursday of the Spring 12-Week.

The program allows students to elect to eat a simple meal of bread and soup in place of the normal entree at the main Dining Hall. Because the bread and soup costs less to prepare than typical meals, $1 is donated back to local charities and nonprofits.

Bread and Soup began when the late Rev. Thomas Niccolls, former college chaplain, helped students put a program in place to help those in need, after an informal discussion on hunger that sparked an urge to do something about it.

The cost is $5 per person or one student meal swipe. One dollar per person gets donated to charity.
