Empty bowls supper
The Interfaith Student Center is once again teaming up with local potter David McBeth for the ninth annual Empty Bowls Soup Supper. The event, which is held each year to raise money for the food bank at WE Care Ministries, will be 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Interfaith Student Center. Community members can help by bringing a pot of a favorite soup to share. For a $10 donation, individuals can enjoy an all-you-can-eat soup supper and take home a pottery bowl handcrafted by UTM art professor David McBeth and some of his students. A $5 donation is requested for those who wish to eat only, but UTM students can eat for free. All donations will go to help feed the hungry in Weakley County.
