Empty Bowls 2016 - Manna Meal - so the hungry can eat

Manna Meal, Inc. Charleston’s seven day a week soup kitchen, announces our 4th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser event to help raise funds and awareness of the ongoing hunger in Charleston, WV.

For a small donation of $25, you get to enjoy a dinner of unlimited homemade soup, garden salad, and bread from the Charleston Bread Company.  After you eat, you are invited to choose your own one of a kind ceramic bowl to take home. Plus, we will have a bake sale for all of your dessert needs.

This event is on October 7, 2016 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church located at 1105 Quarrier St. in downtown Charleston. No reservations or tickets necessary. To Go Orders are available by calling 304-345-7121 the day of the event.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Jim Hores and his pottery students from Taylor Books Annex Gallery, and Michael & Karen Garnes and their students from Capitol Clay Arts Company. They have spent many hours crafting over 250 one of a kind ceramic bowls which they have donated to Manna Meal for this event. Not only did these organizations donate their time but all the materials as well.
