The 19th annual Empty Bowls Soup Luncheons are Thursday, October 4, in Fremont at the TrueNorth Service Center and Friday, October 5, in White Cloud at the Newaygo County Commission on Aging.
Empty Bowls, sponsored by ParVox Technology, helps alleviate hunger in Newaygo County by raising money for TrueNorth Community Service's Food Pantry and Food Programs. Empty Bowls features an all-you-can-eat soup lunch with bread and drinks, and each attendee gets to select a hand-crafted ceramic bowl as a reminder that there are always folks with empty bowls.
The luncheons are from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 each or you can sponsor a table of eight for $150.
You can order your tickets in advance online; or from Donna Hren at TrueNorth by calling (231) 924-0641, ext. 144, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
Event sponsorships of $250, $500 and $1,000 are also offered. For more on those, contact Mark Kraus at (231) 924-0641, ext. 161.
