When empty bowls are filled
Local potters already have donated the 600 hand-thrown, food-safe bowls that guests will be filling at this year’s Empty Bowls soup luncheon. Guests will choose a one-of-a-kind bowl to use at the luncheon and to keep as a reminder that there always will be empty bowls in the world. Tickets are $25 and include a beautiful bowl and a simple lunch of vegetarian soup, bread and cookies. Proceeds from the event will benefit River City Community Services, a local nonprofit that provides emergency food and housing assistance to those in need. The event will be held this Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Find and fill your bowl at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, located at 1300 N Street. To secure your spot at the table, call (916) 446-2627, ext. 4, or visit www.rivercitycommunityservices.org.
