Empty Bowls Soup Feed Benefit Kicks off Sunday
ST. CLOUD -- Empty Bowls Soup Feed Benefit and Silent Auction kicks off tomorrow (Sunday) at Calvary Community Church.
It's an event to raise money for Place of Hope, a non-profit organization that provides food and services to people facing homelessness and hunger in the community.
Area students and volunteers have been busy making handcraft ceramic bowls for the event. You can buy a handmade bowl filled with soup which comes a side of bread and a beverage. When you're finished with the soup, you get to keep the bowl as a reminder of the empty bowls around the world.
Empty Bowls began in 1990, when a Michigan high school arts teacher thought up a creative way raise money for their local food drive. Since then, Empty Bowls events have been hosted world-wide raising millions of dollars to fight hunger.
The event goes from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. An individual ticket is $10 and a family ticket costs $30.
