DP – Empty Bowls to be filled Saturday

Dominion Post

The 2015 Empty Bowls will be 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Saturday, in the Hazel and J.W. Ruby Community Center at Mylan Park.

For a minimum $15 donation, diners will receive a handmade bowl, which they can fill with some of the donated soups on hand.

Children 10 and younger eat free but do not receive a ceramic bowl.

Purchasing a ticket in advance reserves a bowl for Saturday. Tickets will be sold to walk-in patrons as available. Take-out is available anytime from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

For a list of where tickets can be bought, go to ebmon.org/events/tickets.

Bowls are made by many throughout the community, such as Scott Burnworth. Burnworth has been bowled over by worthy causes for a long time.

The Westover man, who volunteers with several outreach groups, is particularly known for his work with Empty Bowls Monongalia, which finances food pantries and after-school nutrition programs countywide.

This past year, he made 250 bowls for the annual Empty Bowls Soup and Bread Luncheon, and he’s made hundreds more for its luncheons before that.
