It’s November and it’s officially soup weather. This weekend, there’s a way to give back while also enjoying soup and taking home one-of-a-kind bowls.
At the Empty Bowls fundraiser you can purchase a handmade bowl, receive a free bowl of soup, and support the Emergency Food Network. Local potters and craftsmen have donated more than 1,000 bowls, and each dollar raised will be used to distribute fresh food in Pierce County.
The event takes place on Nov. 19 at Charles Wright Academy, and bowls start from $10.
The Emergency Food Network gives 16 million pounds of food to 70 food banks, hot meals sites, and shelters each year. Access to fresh, healthy food is important — more than 1.4 million visits are made to Pierce County food banks each year.
