UPDATE: STILL TIME TO ATTEND until 8pm tonight, Friday; Help out the food banks at Empty Bowls event on Jan. 25

Highline’s popular annual Empty Bowls fundraising event is coming up Friday, Jan. 25 at the Burien Community center, 14700 6th Ave. S.W.

Lunch will be served 11a.m.-2 p.m. while dinner is on 4-8 p.m.

Minimum adult donation is $15. For childrem the minimum donation is $10.

Empty Bowls events can be found around the country, raising money to combat hunger in communities.

In Burien, Moshier Art Center potters have donated over 1,300 bowls to be filled with soup at this fun community event. A donation brings the opportunity to pick out a beautiful handmade bowl, as well as a simple but wonderful meal of soup, bread, dessert and drink. All parts of the meal are donated by local businesses.

Last year, the event was so successful, the organizers ran out of bowls. To make sure everyone who attends gets a bowl all donations will be accepted but donors must be present to pick out a bowl.

For those with too many bowls at home already, the organizers say to feel free to bring your own bowl to eat out of or paper bowls will be available too.

The event is hosted by Burien Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services, Discover Burien, and Moshier potters.

Proceeds benefit Highline & White Center food banks
