Empty Bowl Project benefits local food pantry, summer lunch program for kids

1,200 ceramic bowls have been hand-painted by local artists and others in the community. You can buy one for 15 dollars and fill it up with a variety of donated soups at the St. Michael's school gym. All proceeds will benefit the St. Joseph's Food Pantry and the free summer lunch for youth program. The event raises about 30,000 dollars each year.

Monday, you can buy a bowl of soup and help feed the hungry at the 9th annual Grand Forks Empty Bowl Project.
