Fighting Hunger With Empty Bowls


It seems only appropriate to begin a fundraiser against hunger with an empty bowl. 

And that's just how the Empty Bowls Supper organized by Ashland's Peace House starts. 

Attendees do get to put food in the bowl, but they also have to put some money in the kitty to continue several anti-hunger programs in the area. 

We talk about the tradition and the results with one of the organizers.
