Make Bowls to Fight Hunger
On Tuesday, Jan. 17, 1-4 pm, Ingram Library will be hosting a bowl making workshop to benefit Carroll County Empty Bowls (http://carrollcountyemptybowls.com/joom/).
Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
Carroll County Empty Bowls raises money for the Carroll County Soup Kitchen (http://www.carrollcountysoupkitchen.org/)
Please stop by to make a bowl, get more information about the fundraiser event, and/or make a contribution to the Empty Bowls collection jar!
