February 13: Empty Bowls 2014

empty bowlsDon’t miss the annual Empty Bowls fundraiser for The Pantry happening Thursday, February 13, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Oxford University Methodist Church at N. 9th St. and University Ave.

More than a dozen Oxford restaurants will bring soups to the event (last year, Mayor Pat Patterson even made a soup to share). You’ll receive a collectors bowl crafted by the University of Mississippi Mud Daubers and local potters along with bread and a bottle of water in exchange for your $15.00 donation.

The event’s purpose is to remind us all that someone’s bowl is always empty.

Some of the soups you’ll find at this year’s event include:

Chicken tortilla; loaded potato; asparagus potato; chicken noodle; shrimp and okra gumbo; steak and loaded potato; black-eye pea chicken stew; creole tomato basil; Brunswick stew; vegetarian vegetable; butternut squash bisque; broccoli and cheese; Charleston she crab; tomato basil; and jambalaya.
