Empty Bowls

This post is from Beth Turnbull Morrish:

Second Annual Empty Bowls

Dinner Fundraiser - March 31

The Ceramics Department at Lambton College is organizing our second annual Empty Bowls event to take place on Tuesday, March 31, at Creations Fine Dining, the Hospitality program's own restaurant. There will be two seatings, one at 5pm and the later at 6:15pm. Tickets are $25 and are on sale now at Lambton College, in the Counselling Department, call Colleen at x3612, at the Inn of the Good Shepherd, and from members of the Sarnia Lambton Potters Guild.

At Empty Bowls events which have been held around
North America for almost two decades, potters create bowls, and local chefs create soups and everything is donated for the event. Each guest will enjoy a "poverty meal", of soup, bread and coffee or tea, and go home with their choice of bowl as a reminder of all the Empty Bowls around the world.

All funds raised go towards ending hunger in our community. Proceeds will go to the
Inn of the Good Shepherd and Lambton College’s own Food Bank. Last year we raised $6456!

Thanks to our generous community sponsors, last year 99.9% of the ticket price went directly towards ending hunger. This year’s sponsors include:
Lambton College, Alexander Mackenzie High School, Alternate Grounds, Antonio’s Pizza, Blackwater Coffee & Tea Co., The Brigantine, Canadian Linen and Uniform Service, Chartwell’s, Food Basics, GP Catering & The Panini Grill, Lola’s Lounge, New Trish Inn, Normand Piquette Catering, The Pottery Supply House, Sarnia Lambton Potters’ Guild, and Tuckers Pottery Supplies.
