Graves County's Empty Bowls nets more than $15,000

Staff report

Graves County's first large-scale Empty Bowls project, held Saturday at Trace Creek Baptist Church's Family Life Center, netted about $15,433 for the Mayfield-Graves County Food Pantry.

About 900 diners filled the center to sample fare from 19 local restaurants and food vendors. Goodies including slices of pizza, barbecue and potato soup filled the hand-painted bowls provided for the project.

After sampling various foods, diners took the bowls home as a reminder of the hungry people around the world and in their own communities.

"We want to thank all the restaurants who gave of their time, talent and food for the event, all the diners, volunteers and people and businesses who donated silent auction items, door prizes and sponsored bowls for the successful event," coordinator Claudia Heath said. "Thanks to Sissy & Me Too, who supplied all the bowls. This was a major cooperative effort, and we were blessed with such terrific community support and God took care of it all."

Next year's event is set for April 18. Anyone wishing to assist may call Heath at 270-705-6062.

The Food Pantry, a non-profit charity at 424 S. Ninth St., provides emergency food supplies to local needy families. The organization served more than 3,900 families last year.
