Soul food: Soup bowl supper fundraiser in Craig Friday
October 17, 2017
Once again, local potters and restaurants invite the community to fill an empty bowl for a good cause.
Since 2013, potters have made hundreds of bowls that are given to people as part of the ticket price to the Empty Bowl Fundraiser, which takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at St. Michael’s Community Kitchen, 678 School St.
On the night of the fundraiser, those empty bowls are filled with food donated by area restaurants. In the past, the event has helped raise thousands of dollars for St. Michael’s.
Community Kitchen volunteers provide a free hot lunch on Tuesdays and a free hot dinner on Thursday’s, as well as Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. The kitchen also delivers hundreds of meals to senior citizen shut-ins each year.
Tickets are $15 each, $10 for children 10 and younger or $45 for a family. Admission includes a handmade bowl to take home, soup dinner, beverage and dessert. Tickets are available at KS Kreations and Kitchen a la More.
