Empty Bowls, a benefit for the Auburn Food Bank, returns Friday, April 27 to Grace Community Church, 1320 Auburn Way S.

The community is invited to have lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and raise money and awareness in the fight against hunger.

Artisans have made pottery, wood and ceramic bowls, symbolizing the very real daily occurrence of “empty bowls” in the community.

Empty Bowls is a grassroots event that began 25 years ago led by Imagine Render, a nonprofit organization, whose mission is to create positive and lasting change through the arts, education and projects that build community.

The Auburn Food Bank began Empty Bowls in 2011.

Purchase a bowl of your choice then enjoy a soup lunch. Local restaurants and schools are donating soups. Local high school students will be on hand to serve lunch.

Cost is $20 donation per bowl.

For more information, contact Debbie Christian at 253-833-8925 or debbiec@theauburnfoodbank.org.
