Empty Bowls A Success

Checks were distributed to five Fond du Lac food pantries Thursday from the proceeds of last month’s Empty Bowls program. The soup luncheon was at the Holiday Inn in Fond du Lac on November 29th. Brenda Gudex of Envision Greater Fond du Lac says it was a great success. About 500 people were served soups donated by local businesses. The bowls were made by area students. Leadership Fond du Lac Alumni put on the event. Gudex says it was a cause for a need in the community some people may not be aware of. Proceeds from this year’s Empty Bowls event surpassed last year’s totals. Those buying the soup were able to take their bowls home with them.
