Empty Bowls benefit fills plates for needy
Put soup in your own handmade bowl and help to fill bowls for those in need by participating in Empty Bowls Benefit this weekend.
The Grand Valley Catholic Outreach’s benefit is from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at the Soup Kitchen, 245 S. First St.
Empty Bowls is sponsored by Friends of the Grand Valley Catholic Outreach, a partnership of 28 churches in the Grand Valley.
Now in its 13th year, the benefit’s proceeds go toward feeding about 200 individuals, families and children who go to the soup kitchen for the mid-day meal.
Empty Bowls tickets are $25 and include soup, dessert and a handmade pottery bowl of your choice.
The Evergreen String Quartet performs during the event.
