Empty Bowls & Happy Hearts

Manna Food Bank holds its 21st Annual Empty Bowls event on Monday, October 10th from 10am-6pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. More than 100,000 people in WNC face food insecurity each month and this fundraiser helps to feed them. Ticket holders pick a donated bowl handmade by a local artist and enjoy a delicious bowl of soup (donated by local restaurants). They then get to keep the bowl. Four potters at Deerfield have been working hard, producing bowls for the event. Roger Alexander, Pat Patterson, Ann Trousdale and Elinor Hess contributed these and many others. We are also excited that representatives from Manna Food Bank will be at Deerfield to meet the potters. We include a shout out to Deerfield Dining as well for donating cookies for the October 10th event.
