About the event

At the luncheon, guests choose from amongst a collection of beautiful handmade and hand-decorated bowls.  Their bowls are then filled with their choice of soups made by local cooks.  Luncheon guests then keep their bowls to use or display at home and to serve as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world.  Homemade bread and desserts, and beverages donated by local businesses will also be served.

Cost: $15; children 10 and under eat for free (bowl not included)   We hope you will join us for this wonderful event!  For more information, please visit us at or on Facebook at
