This unique annual event features a showcase of one-of-a-kind bowls handcrafted by professional and student artists. Guests enjoy a sampling of gourmet soups, breads, and sweets prepared by chefs from local restaurants. Each participant takes home a handcrafted bowl as a reminder of those who are hungry in our community.
Proceeds of the event go to Community Lifeline Center to help provide food for their Community Lifeline Market as well as Feeding Friends and Families mobile distributions and to Community Garden Kitchen to serve hot meals to anyone in need, no questions asked.
