Cariboo Potters Guild members Lorna Mullette (left) and Barb Fraleigh work on making bowls for the guild’s upcoming Empty Bowls event to raise funds for the Salvation Army’s food bank.

The Empty Bowls event will take place at the legion hall this year with various restaurants contributing eight to 10 litres of soup each.

Potters Alison Mann (also a chef) and Cary Burnett are making the focaccia bread to go with the soup and the legion is supplying coffee, tea and water.

The lunch is $15 and supporters go home with their handcrafted soup bowl. The fundraiser also includes a silent auction. Mullette and Fraleigh are making their bowls here in the potter’s studio located at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre.
