During the event, patrons purchased $15 tickets and filled handmade bowls with food donated from local restaurants. All proceeds benefited the Paducah Community Kitchen. Now, as the second annual Empty Bowls approaches, WKMS&rsquo; Casey Northcutt takes a look at one woman who has spent the past year glazing bowls for the project, and in doing so, she has nourished her own soul.</em></p> Fri, 24 Feb 2012 21:44:39 +0000 Casey Northcutt 17042 at http://wkms.org Jo Dortch & the Empty Bowls Project
