Empty Bowls

Enjoy a bowl of soup, support the Waterbury Food Shelf, and take home a handmade bowl on Sunday, January 20th when the Waterbury Congregational Church hosts an Empty Bowls fundraiser. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for this simple supper featuring a variety of soups donated by local restaurants, homemade rolls, fruit salad, and dessert.

Empty Bowls is a grassroots movement to help end hunger. Communities personalize the event by creating the bowls and choosing the benefiting organization for hunger relief. Over the past few months, area children hand-crafted the ceramic bowls at Seminary Arts in Waterbury Center under the guidance of Mame McKee, who supplied the clay and fired the bowls. Each ceramic bowl reflects the work of the local children and local potters who shaped and decorated them.

Costs are: $20 for a handcrafted bowl and meal, $10 for additional adults. Kids eat free with the purchase of one bowl for the family. All proceeds benefit the Waterbury Food Shelf. To help with food quantities, please join our Facebook event via the Waterbury Congregational Church page and indicate the number attending or reserve tickets by calling the church at 244-6606 or emailing lesley@waterburyucc.org.

The Waterbury Congregational Church is located at 8 North Main Street. The dinner is made possible thanks to local Girl Scouts for making the brownies, Annie Coffey for the homemade rolls, and soup donations from local restaurants.

Empty Bowls strives to raise as much money as possible to feed the world's hungry people, to increase awareness of hunger and related issues, and advocate for arts education. Learn more at http://www.emptybowls.net.
