Empty Bowls event helps feed the hungry

The Southport-Oak Island Food Pantry and the Associated Artists of Southport are working together to help feed the hungry.

Four artists and six others have spent the past year making more than 1,000 clay bowls. They will be used in a benefit called “Empty Bowls.”

The concept is simple. Come to lunch. Buy one of these handmade works of art. Eat the soup prepared by a local restaurant. Your $12 donation goes to feed the poor in Brunswick County. Your bowl is a reminder of the empty bowls you have filled. The money raised will be used to help feed 350 Brunswick County families.

Artist Cheryl Sutherland said, “What if you were hungry? What if you had no food and no place to go? At least if you know you were in that situation you could go to your local food pantry. We want to keep this thing up and running. We want to keep it strong, so if you can contribute your twelve dollars to help feed someone else, it’s not a large task to do that.”

The event takes place Wednesday between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at the Southport Community Center.
