For those in the Hattiesburg area, good friends Main Street Books are sponsoring a fundraiser on October 12th for hunger advocacy, partnered with Edwards Street Fellowship Center. From the organizers:
Empty Bowls is a community project to raise money for local hunger prevention efforts. For $20 you choose from a bowl created by local potters, community members, and students. These bowls are unique and a great keepsake! You then fill the bowl with soup donated by local restaurants. The meal also includes bread, beverage, and dessert.
A worthy effort for a worthwhile cause — contact Diane at Main Street Books for more information.
