FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRESS RELEASE CHAMPLAIN LENNOXVILLE AND BISHOP’S UNIVERSITY ORGANIZE EMPTY BOWLS PROJECT

SHERBROOKE – Champlain College Lennoxville and Bishop’s University have joined forces to organize the forth Empty Bowls/Bols du Partage Project that will be held at the Hope Community Church on November 18th 2017. Dating back to the 1990’s the Empty Bowls international project has been adopted by many communities to fight hunger in their very own neighborhood. This event invites you to share in a bowl of soup to support those in need.

Several hundred beautiful handcrafted bowls have been made by local potters. Each bowl is hand painted and unique. Some of the bowls have been decorated by well-known artists and local dignitaries. Delicious homemade soups and breads have been made by a local chef, Billy Lidstone Chef a Domicile. Local musician Jonathan MacAuley will also be performing.

You are invited to come choose one of the hundreds of bowls, full it with soup, grab a homemade bun and enjoy. You then take the bowl home as a reminder that your contribution has gone directly into your community. All the money we raise goes to Lennoxville Elementary School Breakfast Program, LDWC Food Bank, The Cornerstone Food Bank and the BU/CRC Pastoral Fund.

Soup is truly food for the soul, so help feed another soul and enjoy an autumn afternoon in Lennoxville on October 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Hope Church, 102 Queen Street. Tickets are available for $25.00 each at the Bishop’s University Bookstore, or 819-564-3666 ext 119.

This event is made possible by BU/CRC, Sodexo, Provigo Lennoxville, and Lucy Doheny Pottery.
