Empty Bowls adds new event for its 18th year

This year's Empty Bowls project will feature a new event, all in an effort to raise funds to help those impacted by poverty. The St. Vincent DePaul Mission is holding its largest fundraiser, the 18th Empty Bowls event at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, which usually raises $135,000. Despite a recent setback that forced the closure of the organization's dining room, the mission continued to serve meals at a window. The beneficiaries of these meals, many living on the margins, expressed their gratitude.
