The Cariboo Potters Guild’s Empty Bowls event coming up on Valentine’s Day, Friday, Feb. 14 is a way people can show a little love for those less fortunate in our community by helping to top up the food bank resources.

For $15 visitors will be served a delicious lunch of soup and bread and get to keep the pottery bowl it comes in as a reminder of local and world hunger.

The potters are making bowls and a variety of restaurants and caterers are supplying the soup and buns including Alley Katz, Karen’s Place, Loggers Lunch, Bean Counter Bistro & Coffee Bar, Cattleman’s Choice, TRU Catering and For Sure Bistro.

About 250 handmade bowls of all descriptions are being made for the event which takes place in the Gibraltar Room from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14.

Some potters, artists, and weavers are also creating a variety of items for the silent auction that will take place in conjunction with the event.
