WILIAMSBURG — On Saturday February 9, Community Food Share is hosting its 3rd Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser at the Community Christian Reformed Church in Williamsburg from noon until 2 p.m.

Empty Bowls is an international, grassroots movement to end hunger.

This unique fundraising event allows participating artists and groups to create and donate handcrafted bowls and then serve a simple meal. Guests choose a bowl to use and to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal and the bowl, one hundred percent of each meal’s proceeds are devoted to local hunger-fighting organizations, such as food banks or soup kitchens.

Tickets for this edition of Empty Bowls are $30 each. The lunch will include soup, bread and refreshments all donated by local caterers and bakeries. The ceramic soup bowls have been individually created and donated by over a dozen potters from our community.

Musical Entertainment will be provided by Jon Martin.

All proceeds will go to support Community Food Share.

“Last year’s event sold within a matter of days,” said Community Food Share Executive Director Ian McKelvie. “I anticipate that the tickets for this year’s Empty Bowls will snapped up just as quickly.”

Tickets for Empty Bowls 2019 go on sale starting Thursday, January 10 at Cup of Jo’s in Winchester and Seaway Valley PharmaChoice Morrisburg.
