Local artists and students are making hundreds of ceramic bowls for the event. Attendees will select a bowl for a soup lunch together, and then keep the bowl as a reminder of the ongoing fight against hunger in our communities.
Well over 400 people attended last year’s lunch, raising more than $7,000 for the cause.
Tickets for the February 27 event will be available in mid-January through Nebraska Wesleyan’s Career and Counseling Center and the Heartland Pantry at 48th and Leighton in Lincoln. Tickets are $15. Donations are also accepted. People interested in making a bowl or learning more about the event may contact Associate Professor of Art Lisa Lockman at 402.465.2228 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bowls will be on display through February in Elder Gallery at the Rogers Center for Fine Art.
