Many of us are lucky enough to have food on our tables, but many are not. Here are some ways you can help fight hunger in our community:
- Empty Bowls Project: The Empty Bowls Project is a unique way to learn new skills and raise awareness about hunger. Girls sculpt bowls out of clay and paint them. Then, a dinner is held to raise awareness about food issues. The bowls you made will be sold and the money collected will be used to buy food for the local food bank, a family in need or other worthy cause. You can also “charge admission” to the dinner by requesting a donation of a non-perishable food item.
- Adopt Families for the Holidays: Many families can’t afford to have a holiday feast. Help them celebrate with their families by providing a basket of food for their table.
- Serve a Meal: Serve a meal at a local shelter or assisted living home. It will help the organization and will lift the spirits of anyone who sees you!
