Empty Bowls Soup Supper
Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services invites the public to Empty Bowls Soup Supper on Sunday, October 26, to stand in solidarity with families experiencing hunger and enjoy soups prepared by local restaurants and caterers in a choice of handmade bowls. Proceeds go toward purchase of food for the Kitchen Cupboard food distribution project at 800 Gage Street in Bennington, Vt., which serves in excess of 1200 families, providing well over three quarters of a million pounds of food to participating families since 2011. The project promotes local food, and works closely with farmers to provide tons of fresh produce.
This year’s event will take place at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $10, and will be available at the door on a first come, first served basis. Additional information can be obtained by calling 802-379-0149.
