PACS Hosting Empty Bowls Dinner Event on Friday, November 13th

As part of its Holidays from Hunger program, Phoenixville Area Community Services (PACS) will hold an Empty Bowls Dinner Event at Artisans Gallery & Café 236 Bridge Street, Phoenixville, on Friday, November 13, 2009, from 5 to 8 pm.

Begun in Michigan in 1990 by a group of students who were looking for a project to help support a food drive in their community, The Empty Bowls Project has spread throughout the world including our Phoenixville Community.

This year, local artists and students, (including some from Phoenixville High School, many other schools, and day camps) are creating the ceramic bowls. This project is also being supported by donations from many Phoenixville merchants, restaurants and community volunteers.

You can help eliminate hunger in the greater Phoenixville community by purchasing a ticket for $20. Come to Artisans Cafe on November 13th and start by selecting a handcrafted bowl.

Then, hop into the soup line for a simple meal of soup and bread. You keep the ceramic bowl as a reminder of the need to end hunger locally and globally.

Tickets are available at PACS office Monday through Friday 9:00 am until 4:30 pm and Artisans Gallery and Café during business hours or by calling 610-933-1105 Ext. 213 or emailing development@pacsphx.org.

Thank you for helping us provide Holidays from Hunger for families in need!
