Our View: Decade of fighting hunger something worth celebrating

As the local Empty Bowls team celebrates 10 years of the fundraiser, we want to extend our appreciation and congratulations for the success of the local program.

For a decade, the event has served as a fundraiser for Clark County Community Services.

Last year, Empty Bowls generated more $5,000 for the agency, which serves some of the community’s most in-need families and individuals. Last year, the event also sold out of the 300 bowls — setting a record for the charitable event.

We hope the event will sell out again this year, as it is truly a worthy cause.

For $20, visitors can select a beautiful handmade pottery bowl from Dirty South Pottery, which will be filled with homemade soup prepared by volunteers and bread made by Molly Stotts of My Father’s Garden.

Other groups like, student organizations from George Rogers Clark High School and local churches, pitch in as well — making the event truly a team effort.

That effort does not go unnoticed.

While the event aims to raise funds for CCCS, it also serves as a stark reminder of the issue of hunger in our country.

Clark County is not exempt from this social issue that impacts millions of Americans who aren’t always sure how they will be able to put the next meal on the table.

We applaud everyone involved for their commitment and willingness to make a difference and selflessly donate their time to help those in need.

The event continues to grow and make a positive impact one bowl at a time.
