Empty Bowls Raises More than $12,000 for Oxford Pantry

The annual Empty Bowls fundraiser, a luncheon benefitting the Pantry, raised more than $12,000 for the charitable organization earlier this week. This year’s Empty Bowls event was Tuesday (Feb. 16) at Oxford-University United Methodist Church.

Patrons at the Empty Bowls event get a handmade ceramic bowl and choice of a variety of soups from local businesses, along with bread and a bottle of water. The bowls are created and donated by University of Mississippi ceramics students and local potters.

The Pantry provides food to needy families in the Oxford and Lafayette County community. All proceeds from Empty Bowls will go to help buy food for the Pantry.
