The Missouri Valley Coalition for Homeless People, Inc. in partnership with the Missouri Slope Area United Way are having their first Empty Bowl Event. It will be held Sunday November 17th from Noon-4pm at Century Baptist Church. Empty Bowl is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple. Individuals work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. There will also be a silent auction.
If you have something you would like donate for the silent auction, volunteer, or if you are interested in attending this event, please contact Katie Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The money raised is going towards the Backpack for Kids program and the local Soup Kitchens.
