The Empty Bowl Project will be back in Febuary

Ian Leonard

The Empty Bowl Project is a national charity program where the local community can donate to the Statesboro Food Bank.

For this specific charity, local community members design and submit bowls to be sold full of chili for $10 at the rotunda outside the Russell Union Center on February 11th.

The Statesboro Food Bank estimates that one dollar can pay for seven meals, which means that each bowl purchased provides 70 meals for someone in need.

All you need to do to participate is visit Free Spirit Pottery down on 42 Main Street, and if you mention the Empty Bowl Project, you will be provided with all the materials you need to design your own bowl, completely free of charge.

They will be accepting both cash and checks at the actual sale of the pottery on Feb. 11th, and with both meat and vegetarian chili options, along with a host of free toppings and even water.

The final deadline for submissions is February 6th.
