On March 7 community members can help address hunger in our community by purchasing a simple meal of soup and a hand-made bowl from the Berea College Ceramic Apprenticeship Program or local potters.
The Empty Bowls Dinner will take place in the Woods-Penniman Building on the Berea College campus on Wednesday, March 7, from 5:30 to 7 PM. The idea behind the Empty Bowls Dinner is simple—in exchange for $10, participants will be served a meal of soup in a ceramic bowl made by the Berea College Apprenticeship Program or local potters. You keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The event will also feature a silent ceramics auction of pieces produced by some of the region’s local artisans.
All proceeds will be donated to the Berea Community Food Bank and other local food banks in this community effort to fight local and regional hunger. The event is co-sponsored by the Berea College Center for Excellence in Learning through Service (CELTS) and the Berea College Ceramic Apprenticeship Program.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting Heather Schill at 859-985-3804 or by going to the Alumni Building on Berea College’s campus Monday-Friday 11:15 a.m.-1:15 p.m. and 4:30 – 7 p.m., February 20–March 6. To learn more about the Empty Bowls Project, please visit http://www.emptybowls.net.
