The Empty Soup Bowl supper comes to Goshen

NOW: The Empty Soup Bowl supper comes to Goshen

GOSHEN, Ind -- Approximately 800 people came out to the Goshen Farmers Market on Sunday for a crowd-drawing event.

Organizers say this is a big draw every year and this year was no different.

Every year the Goshen Clay Artists Guild comes together to bring awareness to hunger.

Ceramic bowls are made, everyone eats a bowl of soup, and leaves with a bowl.

“We can serve up to a hundred people every half hour, we make enough bowls to serve eight hundred people,” said Julie Wilcox, Goshen Clay Artists Guild.

With each bowl, there is a suggested donation of $15.

“We usually raise from $8,000 to $10,000 a year for Interfaith Hospitality” said Wilcox.

The money goes to organizations like the Goshen Interfaith Network which serves homeless families in the community.
