Empty Bowl and Bag Auction

Posted: Updated:

The first annual Empty Bowl and Bag Auction Event was held today in Bismarck to raise awareness about hunger and homelessness. 

The Missouri Valley Coalition for Homeless People in partnership with the Missouri Slope  United way hosted the first soup lunch and silent auction at the Century Baptist Church. 

There were some Familiar faces serving the soup, like Governor Dalrymple and the First Lady. 
Empty Bowl is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. More than 300 bowls were hand-crafted by Clay your way in Fargo and by students and professors at Bismarck State College.

"Just seeing everyone come and support our community, I mean all of the money raised is going back into our community to the back packs for kids program and our local soup kitchens and I know a lot of our clients they rely on the soup kitchens everyday," says Katie Lee, Missouri Valley Homeless Coalition. 

Lee says that they are planning on making this an annual event.
