Bowls Get Filled to the Brim With Generosity

Posted: Updated:

The issue of hunger and homelessness is very apparent right here in Bismarck/Mandan.

That's why there's an effort to feed those in need.

This is the Empty Bowl event.

A fundraiser that encourages people to decorate and purchase bowls then fill up on a bowl of soup.

Money raised will go to the Missouri Valley Homeless Coalition.

Organizers say they have around 300 bowls with around half sold.

They want the public to be aware about hunger and homelessness not just this week, but everyday.

 "Our numbers are pretty high right now with homeless shelters, it's nearing 600 in the Bismarck/Mandan area, and I know a lot of my clients utilize the soup cafe, the soup kitchens on a daily basis, especially with the recent food stamp cuts." says Katie Lee, Missouri Valley Homeless Coalition.

Organizers raised more than 34-hundred dollars which will go to the Missouri Valley Homeless Coalition.
