Soup makes everything better, even an economy that’s boosted the number of people who rely on food banks.

Emergency Food Network
will harness the power of soup and combine it with the elevating influence of art at its annual Empty Bowls fundraiser from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 13 at Life Center, 1717 S. Union St.

Potters have been throwing, glazing and firing the bowls that will be for sale for $15 and up. Patrons can buy a bowl, then enjoy soup donated by eight restaurants, including Masa, Infinite Soups, The Swiss, Adriatic Grill and The Hub.

It’s the most festive soup line imaginable, and every dollar it raises will go straight to EFN. which supplies 65 food banks in Pierce County.

Maximizing the dollars means minimizing expenditures. That’s why EFN’s Stephanie Genton is rounding up volunteers.

“We are looking for six volunteers to help with the event from 11am to 2pm and six volunteers from 2pm to 5pm,” she said.

Keep in mind that it’s a great way to meet people, to rack up volunteer hours, and do something warm and healthy for the community.

Interested? Call Stephanie at 253-584-1040, ext 107, or e-mail her at stephanie@efoodnet.org.
