Raising hunger awareness with 'Empty Bowls'
It was a gathering like many in the community when people gather to share a meal. In most cases, there is an abundance of food.
During the "Empty Bowls Community Event," however, donors got a modest bowl of soup, a small piece of bread and water.
There were no complaints because everyone knew the purpose of the event, hosted by School District 833 Community Education, was to raise money and awareness that many people in the community and the world go hungry every day.
