Children at the York JCC have been painting bowls bought by their families for the Empty Bowls Project. The Prancing Pig, a local " paint your own pottery" studio has fired the painted bowls. Now it is time to fill those bowls with soup.

The JCC will hold an Art Show and Charity Soup Dinner, 4:30-6:30 p.m. Monday at the JCC, 2000 Hollywood Drive. Soup will be served at 5 p.m.

The York community is invited to join forces with the JCC, Prancing Pig and Simply Soup in helping to fight hunger in the York community. The soup will be free, thanks to Simply Soup, but donations will be appreciated. All funds donated will go to Our Daily Bread.

Along with the dinner, the event will feature art created by children in the Early Childhood, School Age Childcare and evening art programs.

The Empty Bowls Project is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by the Imagine Render Group. Visit for more information.
