Northside Empty Bowls

March 12, 2015 4:22 PM

The City of Madison has a renewed focus on issues of race and equity as a result of the tragic events of last Friday night.  As we continue that focus, I think it is also important to keep working in areas where neighbors are helping neighbors.  One of those events is occurring Saturday night at Warner Park.

Head over to Warner Park Community Recreation Center this Saturday, March 14th from 4 pm to 6:30 pm for the Empty Bowls Project, an international grassroots initiative working to fight world hunger.

Guests come for a meal of soup and bread, make a cash donation of $15, and leave with a one-of-a-kind handcrafted bowl made by local potters, craftspeople, and educators. The money raised will be donated to the Food Enterprise and Economic Development (FEED) Kitchens.  The bowls you bring home act as a symbol of the empty bowls in countries all around the world.

To get more details on the local business involved in the event and to see family discounts that will be offered check out the event page at the link below!
