‘Empty Bowls’ to be filled Oct. 13 at Solana Beach fundraiser

Soup cooked by local restaurants will be served in ceramic bowls handcrafted by local artisans Oct. 13 at a fundraiser to benefit elderly, hungry and working poor people in San Diego.

And diners will get to choose their own bowls and take them home afterward.

The event, called “Empty Bowls,” will benefit the Third Avenue Charitable Organization, which is run by First Lutheran Church in downtown San Diego.

It will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at Calvary Lutheran Church, 424 Via de la Valle, Solana Beach, whose members regularly volunteer to help TACO with its mission.

The soup, plus freshly baked bread, will be provided by Villa Capri, The Brigantine, Beach Grass Café, Milton’s, The Fish Market and other area restaurants.

After enjoying their meals, guests take their bowls home as a reminder of those throughout the world whose bowls are empty.

Created in 1990 in Michigan, Empty Bowls is now an international grass-roots effort to fight hunger. Locally, it has raised more than $55,000 for TACO since 2007.

A donation of $20 per meal is suggested for the Oct. 13 fundraiser.

For more information, phone the church at (858) 755-2855 or go to its Web site: www.CalvaryLutheranChurch.org
