The concept of the Kingfield Empty Bowls Event is simple: Attendees make a donation (suggested at $20 per bowl), select a beautiful handmade bowl donated by a local pottery artist, enjoy a hearty meal of soup and bread prepared by local restaurants and served by volunteers, and then keep their bowl as a reminder that many of our neighbors are in need of food and housing.
