Hundreds help in Cape Girardeau to feed the hungry

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Hundreds took part in the Empty Bowls Banquet at the Salvation Army Sunday in Cape Girardeau.

More than 600 unique bowls were created by Southeast Missouri State University students and volunteers.

Each bowl is different and upon purchasing one of these bowls in turn help those in the community that are in need and are without food.

People lined up at the Salvation Army to pick their favorite bowl and ate soup afterwards.

The bowls represent more than 1,000 volunteer hours, making them with each a different story behind their unique design.

The goal for this years Empty Bowl fundraiser is at $5,000.

There will also be a silent auction starting Friday for these bowls at the Arts Council of SEMO and be available at the craft fair held at the Osage Center before Thanksgiving.
