Raising Hunger Awareness One Bowl at a Time

The Hopewell United Methodist Church will host a fundraising “Empty Bowls” dinner to benefit Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) on Sunday, January 10 at 4 p.m.- 6 p.m. (Snow date: January 17). Hopewell United Methodist Church (hopewellmethodist.org) is located at 20 Blackwell Avenue, Hopewell Borough.

The event will feature a simple supper of soup, bread, and dessert, and a speaker from TASK who will help the community learn about local hunger and food insecurity.

The event costs $15 per person for the simple supper. Local chefs from Hopewell restaurants and businesses – Brothers Moon, Sweetgrass, Brick Farm Market and Pennington Market are contributing soups and breads.

Also, ceramic bowls from local (famous and non-famous) artists and artisans will be available for purchase.  All proceeds from the event and bowl sales will benefit Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK).
