The Empty Bowl Soup Super is one of the major fundraisers of the year for Hospitality House, Nevada County’s homeless shelter program. Development Director Joanna Robinson says dozens of local potters create the bowls for the event and 55 bowls this year were made by Hospitality House guests.
Empty Bowl is an event where the community gathers to share a simple meal and take home a beautiful handmade bowl. But in the bigger picture proceeds from the event allows Hospitality House to offer jobs training and life skills to their clients.
Robinson says often, getting the homeless into jobs leads to being able to afford their own home.
They have also assisted over 50 families with children into their own house.
Tickets to the empty bowl event are available on line at HHShelter.org , Briarpatch, the bookseller and at the door.
