Soup-off to pit faculties in charitable competition

A lunchtime battle tomorrow — Tuesday, Nov. 26 — will raise funds for the United Way by having UWindsor faculties compete in a taste test.

Diners at the Great Faculty Soup-off will make an $8 donation to sample eight soups and vote for their favourites, each sponsored by a UWindsor faculty. Last year’s champion, the Faculty of Education, will defend its crown with a different entry — sweet potato bisque.

Organizers will admit only the first 400 patrons, starting at 11:30 a.m. in the CAW Student Centre Commons. To secure your place, order tickets by emailing campaign co-chair Sheri Lowrie at

The proceeds will support the United Way in its commitment to making childhood poverty in our community unignorable.
