Empty Bowls in Pierre

 

We invite you to join us for the 3rd annual Empty Bowls event on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 5:30-7:30pm at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church, 714 N Grand Avenue in Pierre, SD. This event benefits the work of the Mobile Food Pantry Program in central South Dakota. This program is designed to bring food to where hunger lives in rural South Dakota where access to nutritious food is limited. The Mobile Food Pantry currently travels to 15 communities on a 4-6 week rotating schedule, bringing vital foods like produce, meats, dairy items and non-perishables to those in need.

Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6 and older. Children 5 and under are free. Each ticket to the event includes a simple meal of soup, bread and dessert along with a ceramic hand-painted bowl. These bowls are painted by children and adults in our local communities and are a symbol of all of the bowls left to fill to ensure no one goes hungry.
