Empty Bowls raised $12,000 for the Auburn Food Bank during its annual luncheon at Grace Community Church last Friday.
Artisans made pottery, wood and ceramic bowls, symbolizing the real daily occurrence that there are “empty bowls” in homes in the community.
Customers purchased a bowl of their choice then enjoyed a soup lunch.
Local restaurants and school culinary programs donated soups. Local high school students were on hand to serve lunch.
