How can the purchase of one clay bowl nutritiously feed 75 hungry people? Waste Not's 19th Annual Empty Bowl Event aims to do just that.
The handcrafted bowls for sale at the event are made and donated to Waste Not from the Arizona Clay Association. The empty bowls have a minimum donation of $12, and the proceeds go to help keep the refrigerated trucks from Waste Not on the streets, feeding the needy.
We heard that Waste Not sadly lost a major donor recently, so those interested in lending a hand should go to the Arizona Center on Friday, October 16, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and buy a bowl. Sam's Café will be providing lunch to those who buy an empty bowl.
