Lorain County Community College is a proud partner in Empty Bowls by the Lake, a community project to fight hunger. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, October 15 at the American Legion Post 211, 31972 Walker Road, Avon Lake.
LCCC students and other volunteers have created more than 100 handcrafted bowls and LCCC Culinary Arts students and instructors will prepare soup, as well as local restaurants.
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.
A $20 donation will include one pottery bowl, and unlimited soup and bread. Children that accompany a $20 donor may participate in the event for a reduced donation of $5 for ages 6-12 and free for 5 and under. The reduced donation includes soup and bread, but does not include a pottery bowl.
Those who attend will be able to keep a bowl as a reminder of the empty bowls in the world. All proceeds will benefit CRS and Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio. For more information, visit www.emptybowlsbythelake.org.
