Satellite Center hosts food drive
March 19, 2008 at 11:07 am
Empty Bowls, an event where all proceeds are given to Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans, will be held March 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Satellite Center Banquet Room.

The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple. Students from St. Charles Parish Public Schools create ceramic bowls, then serve a simple meal of soup and bread. Guests choose a bowl to keep as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. In exchange for a meal and the bowl, all guests donate $10 per person for a ticket to the event. Tickets are available at the door.
