About the event:

This event supports our programs, which allow us to feed the hungry citizens of our community and service area. Each person attending leaves with a hand-crafted stoneware bowl of their choosing from Down Under Pottery. The empty bowls symbolize the bowls our community has filled over the years–and the bowls that still need filling.
