at the Empty Bowls Benefit Friday, March 11.

The event will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at First Christian, 300 N. Glendora Ave. Participants can purchase a handcrafted ceramic bowls for $20. The bowls will be filled with soup and bread donated by area restaurants.

The idea, organizers said on the First Christian website, is for participants to also take their bowls home after they finish eating, as a reminder that others in the community have empty bowls, not by choice, but through unfortunate circumstances.

Proceeds benefit Shepherd’s Pantry and St. Vincent de Paul Church.
