An empty bowl is the symbol of hunger. In support of our neighbors coping with food insecurity, Barnabas will host its third annual Empty Bowls luncheon on November 14th, 2016, to raise funds to combat hunger and crisis in Nassau County. Local restaurants will donate a simple meal of soup and bread, volunteers will serve guests and prominent speakers will provide information and hope.
In addition, each guest will choose from over 1,000 handcrafted bowls to find their favorite to take home. Potters, students, and senior citizens throughout the area have been creating original ceramic bowls so that each attendee can have a permanent reminder of the many bowls we still need to fill in order to provide nourishment to the hungry in Nassau County.
Doors open at 11:00am and the luncheon begins at 12:00pm
