Following the creation and design of the bowls, guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread on Thursday, April 21 at the UFV Abbotsford (further details to follow). In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to the Abbotsford Food Bank, an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
