Potters unite to help feed the hungry

The annual “Empty Bowl” fundraiser will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, March 2, at The Open Door Soup Kitchen in Waynesville.

Local potters donate handcrafted bowls, which guests can then buy — filled with soup — for a $20 donation to the Open Door.

In addition to the handcrafted bowl by a local potter, the donation includes a simple meal of soup, cornbread, dessert and refreshments. Patrons are asked to keep their bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls around the world.

Jim and Karen Doyle have been attending the Empty Bowl fundraiser for years and have amassed a proud collection of the handcrafted bowls from the event.

“We praise all the local potters that offer to make bowls, free of charge, and give them to the Open Door for this project,” Karen Doyle said.

All proceeds from the dinner will go towards the effort to end hunger.
