There won't be any empty bowls on Sunday during the annual 100 Bowls event that takes a local approach to the larger effort of fighting hunger.
In its 4th year, the event is hosted by Dockside Deli, Gallery 224 and offers bowls handcrafted by Port Washington-Saukville School District students for sale to attendees.
It's inspired by a movement known as Empty Bowls, "an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group," according to Emptybowls.net. Milwaukee Empty Bowls hosts a similiar event.
Event attendees can visit the gallery between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday, and purchase a handcrafted bowl for $15. That price also includes a visit to Dockside Deli for a "real bowl" of soup, as well as bread and a cookie. Pariticipants will be able to choose from eight made-from-scratch soups, including: tomato basil, potato, beef barley, chicken dumpling, cream of asparagus, cream of mushroom and cheesy broccoli.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Port Washington Food Pantry and the Saukville Community Food Pantry. In 2012 and 2011, the event raised nearly $1,500.
