The Hightstown Cultural Arts Commission will host the 3rd annual Empty Bowls event, this year at Peddie School. Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger, personalized by artists and art organizations on a community level. Guests choose a bowl handmade by a local artist, to fill with soup or hot dishes donated by area eateries, and keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal, and the bowl, guests contribute a donation to the Hightstown Cultural Arts Commission and the local Rise Food Pantry.
Don’t miss out, get tickets early to reserve your bowl(s). 12 Farms, Byrne Café, Fernando’s Grille, Mannino’s, Morgan’s Island Grill, Pompier Catering, TacoRito and Tavern On The Lake are confirmed soup providers! “Souper Hero” sponsorships are available at the link.
Tickets also available for purchase at Greater Goods Thrift Store 114 Rogers Ave.
