CELTS has a long-standing relationship with the Berea Food Bank, working together to support the community and address food insecurity. Every year, CELTS hosts 2 events to support the food bank- Better Together 5k marathon in the fall, and Empty Bowls fundraiser in the spring.

What is Empty Bowls?

Empty Bowls is a grassroots movement by artists and craftspeople in cities and towns around the world to raise money for food-related charities to care for and feed the hungry in their communities.

Empty Bowls supports food-related charitable organizations around the world and has raised millions of dollars to help end hunger. All of Empty Bowls events proceeds will go towards Berea Food Bank a part of Berea Faith Community Outreach (BFCO)

What is Better Together?

The Better Together 5k Run/Walk is part of a community event designed to support the Berea Food Bank and to remind all of us that we are indeed Better Together.

This 2nd Annual event – formerly known as the Hunger Hurts Food or Fund Drive is celebrating its 30th anniversary.  That's 31 years of Bereans taking care of each other and 31 years of community support for people and families in need of a little help.
