Organizers of the 4th Annual Boyne City Empty Bowls Project invite you to a community meal and fundraiser from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 3 in the community room at the Boyne District Library.
During the summer, community members made 72 bowls, at the Friday night Stroll the Streets events and the SOBO Arts Festival which, will be sold to raise funds to help fight hunger at the Oct. 3 event.
Tickets are $20, available at The Grain Train, the Manna Food information booth at the Farmers Market, and at the Boyne District Library.
All proceeds are donated to The Manna Food Project.
Your donation buys you lunch of soup and bread, and a bowl of your choice to keep.
“Empty Bowls” is an international project to fight hunger.
The bowls used in the project are personalized by artists and art organizations on a community level.
Each community’s events are self-developed and independent.
The project expands one group at a time, and events are currently held in many areas in the United States and Canada.
“Empty Bowls” now supports food related charities around the world and has raised millions of dollars to help alleviate hunger.
The expressed objectives of “Empty Bowls” are:
• Raise as much money as possible to feed the world’s hungry people. Lives are in the balance.
• Increase awareness of hunger and related issues. Through education, awareness, and action, concerned individuals can change human attitudes that allow hunger to exist.
• Advocate for arts education. Nurturing the creative process through the arts enhances the possibility of finding new solutions to old problem.
