Artists from all around the area are busy crafting beautiful signature bowls that will be displayed all over the halls of the Boys & Girls Club in Gig Harbor  8502 Skansie Ave.  Gig Harbor, WA 98335 at EMPTY BOWLS  11am – 2pm.

Choose the bowls you wish to purchase (as price of admission) and then choose to fill your bowl(s) with a selection from 8 different homemade soups.  Your purchase of a bowl at the “Empty Bowls” luncheon helps provide summer lunches to local kids who go without lunch every summer.  So come for lunch to provide lunch for needy kids.

Many of our local children go hungry in the summer. There is an unfortunate system gap when the supplemental school lunch program ends and YES, Gig Harbor kids going hungry during the summer. As you sip your soup you will learn about the staggering statistics of low income families in the area and hear why our entire community does not qualify for summer food assistant programs.  Altrusa of Gig Harbor is addressing this issue and with your support at Empty Bowls you will be helping kids.

As you eat your hardy lunch of soup & bread you can browse this amazing facility for an upcoming event for yourself or an organization you belong to as a possible venue.

So drop in anytime from 11am – 2pm on Sat. Feb. 18th, 2017 at the Boys & Girls Club in Gig Harbor and have a bowl of soup and take this opportunity to see this community facility that you can rent for your own fundraiser.
