Hub City Empty Bowls Soup Day


On Saturday, Oct. 15, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Hub City Empty Bowls will host its annual Soup Day, a charitable event that raises funds to help feed the needy in Spartanburg. On Soup Day, at Chapman Cultural Center, hundreds of colorful pottery bowls will be presented to the community. These bowls were made during the summer, when people were invited to make pottery bowls at no cost. These were wonderful family and creative events attended my several hundred people. The bowls range from child-like to professional quality. All them represent the sincere effort to stop hunger in Spartanburg. During Soup Day, you can choose the bowls you like, each for a $15 donation. Then head on over to Chapman’s theater, where more than a dozen local restaurants will provide gourmet soup, bread, and tea while you enjoy live music. This is a fun and filling event, but most importantly, patrons can gather in fellowship, knowing the bowls in their hands will help feed the hungry and needy citizens of Spartanburg. Last year, Hub City Empty Bowls, a project of Carolina Clay Artists, donated $26,000 to TOTAL Ministries.
