The Morning Thing started a new feature today (11/4/13). Each weekday morning at 8:40am, we will feature a conversation with members of the Food For The Hungry Committee. We will talk about the many wonderful events happening to support the fight against hunger in our community. We hope you tune in and check back to this blog as we share the exciting news of what is happening in 2013! 
Food For The Hungry – Working Together to Care for our Neighbors! 

The Kenyon Empty Bowls Soup Supper and Art Auction is this Friday, November 8.
This annual Soup Supper and Art Auction raises hunger awareness and funds for families in need.
On Friday, Nov. 8. Kenyon’s Craft Center, in cooperation with The Kenyon Review, will be hosting the 7th annual Empty Bowls Soup Supper and Auction at Kenyon’s Peirce Hall from 5 to 7 p.m.

A humble and Spartan meal of soup and bread will be served to remind attendees of the many in Knox County who have little to eat, due to current economic hardships. Guests will have the opportunity to buy or bid on pottery bowls created by students, faculty, staff, and community members in earlier workshops at the Craft Center and Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Donations for the meal will be added to the bowls and art sales and presented to Knox County’s Food For The Hungry campaign.
Suggested donations for the supper are $5.00 for children and students, $8.00 for adults. Art and bowls will be offered by silent auction and bidding will close at 7:30 p.m. For more information please contact Lacey FIlkins at 740-427-5447.

Please take a minute and listen to a conversation about Kenyon’s Empty Bowls.
