The Murray Art Guild and partners host a 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Project to benefit Needline of Murray and Calloway County Friday. Guild Director Debi Danielson is here with Nicole Schmittou, representing MSU Nutrition students cooking the soup that will go in the bowls after they are made. Debi describes the project - an effort to fight hunger needs in the community. The bowls are made by local artists and volunteers - all are welcome. A fundraising event is then held, where the bowls are sold as a donation. This event is Friday, (October 18) from 7 to 10 pm at the Murray Art Guild. See more on the Murray Art Guild website.
Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon is encouraging residents to spend some time this holiday season helping curb hunger. Simon wants to highlight volunteering time, giving money or donating food to help children, seniors and families access nutritious food while the economy continues to recover.
