Empty Bowls is a community project, cosponsored by
the Aberdeen Area Arts Council, the Aberdeen Parks,
Recreation and Forestry Department and the Yelduz
Shrine Center that combines the creative arts and
education to work on a social problem -- hunger.
Bowls are created by local community people,
students and artists who then host a simple meal of
soup and bread. Guests attending the meal make
a suggested $15 donation, choose a bowl to have
soup in, then take the bowl home as a reminder of
the event and of the fact that hunger exists, even
here in Aberdeen. All funds support area programs,
including the Salvation Army, Safe Harbor, and other
food banks and local organizations that address
hunger issues through direct service and education/
Jan. 30, Feb. 13 and March 12.
Although there is no fee to participate, please call
626-7081 to reserve your spot in the activity.
Empty Bowls Dinner:
Saturday, April 9
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Yelduz Shrine Center, 802 S. Main Street.
