Empty Bowls To Provide Food


Somehow, one of the richest countries on Earth has difficulty feeding all of its people adequately.

So we have SNAP ("food stamps"), food banks, and many program providing food for people who have trouble affording it. 

Ashland is the site of the annual Empty Bowls fundraiser to bring in money for local program addressing hunger. 

Pam Marsh from the Ashland Emergency Food Bank and Maren Faye from Uncle Food's Dinervisit to explain the impact of the fundraiser.  It will be held Friday May 13th.
