DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — The Empty Bowls Dothan project helps fight hunger in the Wiregrass. Bowls created by the community will be sold at the Cultural Arts Center from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb.2. For $10 each, attendees will receive a ceramic bowl of their choice and a meal of soup, bread, and water. All funds raised from the sale of the bowls will go to the Wiregrass Area Food Bank.
The majority of the bowl-making sessions are held at the Cultural Art Center to offer the community “hands on” access to its benefits. Five Star Credit Union sponsors Empty Bowls Dothan and provides all the supplies needed for the project. The Cultural Arts Center houses the all of the bowl-making events and the fundraiser luncheon and art show. Donations from art show vendors will benefit the Cultural Art Center. The project’s founding potter, Lynn Koning, offers pottery classes at the CAC, and a variety of other arts classes are offered at the center as well.
Every Empty Bowls Dothan bowl that sells for $10 will provide enough food to feed a family of 4 for a week. Please help make Empty Bowls Dothan a success for our friends and neighbors in need in the fight against hunger.
