Empty Bowls success in Western North Carolina

Awesome news: Dig In! Yancey Community Garden held their 5th Annual Empty Bowls this past Friday and raised over $10,000. In Mitchell County, Shepherd's Staff Food Bank raised over $7,000 at their Empty Bowls event in August. Manna Food Bank in Asheville sold out both their lunch and dinner Empty Bowls events. I think there have been more Empty Bowls events in Western North Carolina - anybody have any more reports? And if you know of any more Empty Bowls events coming up, let us know.

Thanks to Lisa Blackburn and John Hartom for starting Empty Bowls 25 years ago - and to all the Clay Clubbers who contributed to these WNC events!
