The International Cuisine Class at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) took part in the second annual Empty Bowls fundraising event in Bowling Green on February 26, 2014. Empty Bowls works with artists and members of the community to help raise funds and awareness to end hunger in our communities.

Through the hard work of volunteers, hand crafted bowls were created to serve soup to those who attended the event.

A variety of foods were provided by restaurants such as Mariah's, The Bistro, Rafferty's, Verdi's, JD Bakery and Cafe, McKenzye's Eatery and Bakery, as well as the International Cuisine class at the Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College. On the night of the event each person attending was asked to make a minimum donation of $10. Each guest selected  a bowl from the many beautiful bowls created by our area artists. They were then served a simple meal of soup and bread, along with a beverage. After the meal, each person got to take the bowl home with them. It makes a beautiful addition to their home, and also serves as a reminder that there are many empty bowls in our community that go unfilled each day.

All funds from the event are donated to area charities which focus on providing food to those who are hungry. All money raised was distributed equally between the Manna Mart at HOTEL INC and the Life Care Ministry run by the University Church of Christ.

Working together, through simple acts of kindness, we can make a tremendous difference in the lives of all those around us
