Empty Bowl Dinner

Our high school Key Club held an Empty Bowls Dinner to help increase awareness about homelessness in the area. We attended the dinner last night and had a really nice evening. The students in the district's art classes made bowls. Above is a photo of the three bowls we bought last night. They served beef vegetable and broccoli cheese soup with a slice of bread. It really makes one thankful for what you have when you consider that a bowl of soup and a slice of bread are what some people survive on daily.

There was live music by Rachel Allen and her son Johnny, who is a middle school student in our district.

A local dance company performed a hip-hop number. Several of my former students were performing. They did a great job!

Thanks for stopping by!
Blessings and peace,

I think this is such a great idea. What a wonderful way to raise awareness for a very big problem. The bowls are beautiful.
