PRE-Empty Bowls @ KAXE

KAXE is proud to host a pre-empty bowls event. We'll have homemade soups by Borscht from Brewed Awakenings, Split Pea Soup from Gail Otteson, Pumpkin Soup from Freida Hall, Karla from Grand Organic Food Market and Chicken Noodle from Sarah MacRostie - and there will be bread and crackers. Empty Bowls is a benefit for the Second Harvest North Central Food Bank & Community Cafe....where all of the money raised is used in our communities. In Minnesota 1 in 8 children are at risk of hunger. 40% of the Grand Rapids Food Shelf clients are children....KAXE is holding a pre-event this Saturday April 10th from 11am-1pm where you can come enjoy a bowl of homemade soup ($5) and purchase a handmade bowl ($15 with soup). A gift of even $10 can provide as much as 60 lbs of nutritious food for our friends and neighbors. The main event of Empty Bowls is next Thursday April 15th at the Timberlake Lodge in Grand Rapids.
