EMPTY BOWLS: Annual Event Is April 12
Empty Bowls will be held at First Baptist Church at 425 Eastern ByPass on Friday, April 12. This multi-denominational project was created in 1997 as a community-wide event to raise money and awareness about hunger in Madison County.
EKU has been a participant in Empty Bowls from its inception and serves again this year as a co-sponsor.
Participants pay a minimum donation of $12 and receive a handmade pottery bowl (donated by EKU art students and local professional potters), a bowl of meatless vegetable soup, bread and a drink.
Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and dinner will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
All money collected (100%) goes to help feed the hungry in Madison County through the Richmond Food Bank at New Liberty Family Shelter, God's Outreach Community Food Bank, Home Meals Delivery, and the Salvation Army of Madison County.
Event Date: April 12 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4:30-6:30 p.m. Location: First Baptist Church, Eastern Bypass Cost: Donation of $12 or More
