You’re Invited to the 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Event on Sunday, January 20th
Fill A Bowl from Boulder Mountain Clayworks and
Help Fill The Bellies of Hungry Families through The Hunger Coalition
No better symbol for hunger exists than an empty bowl. In acknowledgment of those Blaine County residents struggling with hunger, Boulder Mountain Clayworks, The Hunger Coalition and a host of local chefs and caterers are filling bowls for the 3rd Annual Empty Bowls event on Sunday, January 20th from 12 noon – 2pm at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood.
Purchase a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl, enjoy lunch with fellow community members and help your neighbors in need!
Thanks to Boulder Mountain Clayworks, there will be over 300 hand-crafted and hand-painted bowls from professional and amateur artisans and students to select from this year. With the purchase of a bowl for $20, guests can enjoy a wonderful array of tasty soups, hearty chili, crisp salads, fresh bread and a yummy dessert. The bowls is yours to keep!
This event kicks off The Hunger Coalition’s 10 year anniversary and Executive Director, Jeanne Liston, hopes the community will come out and celebrate. “This is a fun event that is geared for the entire family,” states Liston. “It’s a great opportunity for community members young and old to share a communal meal, receive a beautiful bowl, and help fight hunger locally.”
Proceeds benefit the nearly 1,600 children and adults in Blaine County experiencing hunger and reaching out to The Hunger Coalition for help.
Modeled after the international grassroots Empty Bowls project, the purpose is to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in our community and raise critical funds to provide relief for those facing food insecurity. For the cost of one bowl, The Hunger Coalition can provide over one day’s worth of healthy, nourishing meals for a family of three.
The 3rd Annual Empty Bowls takes place in the cafeteria of the Church of the Big Wood on Sunday, January 20th from 12 noon – 2pm. Lunch features gourmet soups, crisp salads, hearty chili, fresh breads and delicious desserts! Participants include: Atkinsons’ Markets, Big Wood Bread, CK’s Real Food, Della Mano, Esta, Perry’s, Rolling in Dough, Sayvour, Starbucks, Sun Valley Company, Toni’s Ice Cream and Wallee Lange.
