Empty Bowls is an international, grassroots, crafts-based effort to end hunger. For a 10-dollar ticket participants enjoyed soup and a beverage along with a beautiful handmade bowl to keep and community fellowship all while supporting a good cause. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Virginia Cooperate Extension, which serves to eliminate hunger in the Prince Edward County area.
