Annual Empty Bowl Soup Supper to benefit the homeless

Handmade bowls crafted by local potters will be taken home by ticketholders at this year’s Empty Bowl soup supper, one of Hospitality House’s biggest fundraisers.

Homemade soups, breads and beverages donated by Sopa Thai, Diego’s Restaurant, Kane’s, New Moon Cafe and several volunteer chefs will be served in two seatings.

The event will feature entertainment by inya eeya. Sponsors include The Union, KVMR 89.5 Community Radio and BriarPatch Co-op.

The fundraiser serves as a reminder that many people, in particular the homeless, do not have enough to eat. The Empty Bowl concept is a nationally recognized project used throughout the U.S. to raise money for the hungry. Artists and other volunteers donate handcrafted bowls, which ticketholders will select, fill with soup and take home to keep.

Hospitality House is a nonprofit organization built on a coalition of faith groups, community organizations, volunteers and local businesspeople. Its mission is to provide a compassionate place of rest, sustenance, and dignity for those who are temporarily without homes.
