Empty Bowls to help feed souls

The Memphis Empty Bowls Project will be held from 5-7 p.m. Nov. 11 at Church Health Center Wellness, 1115 Union Ave.

Come enjoy a simple, delicious meal of soup and bread donated by more than a dozen Memphis restaurants. Included in the ticket price, guests take home a handpainted or handcrafted bowl donated by a Memphis area potter or community member.

Proceeds benefit the Mid-South Food Bank, the food ministries of St. John’s United Methodist Church and the nutritional education programs of Church Health Center.

The Empty Bowls initiative is about more than just raising funds. It’s also about bringing the community together to think about the issue of hunger and how we can combat this problem in our city. This event brings together children, artists, restaurants, businesses, and community members in the common cause of not only eliminating empty bowls, but in raising awareness around the issue of food insecurity in our city.

There will be an art-focused silent auction and an art sale. Get some holiday shopping done early at this family-friendly event.
