Hope Mission is to host its annual Empty Bowls Luncheon Fundraiser for the 19th consecutive year. This event is held at the Civic Center which is located at 3505 Arendell Street in Morehead City. This year’s Empty Bowls fundraiser will take place on February 24, 2022, and lunch will be served from 11am to 1pm.

Empty Bowls is an international project to fight hunger. Events can be found around the country raising money for local organizations to help their communities. Proceeds from this event will go to Hope Mission, and Martha’s Cupboard; both ministries which help feed the hungry in our community.

With the purchase of a ticket, the guest will be able to pick a handcrafted bowl, made by professional potters, high school art classes, and various individuals. Guest will also be able to enjoy two delicious bowls of soups, donated by Carteret Community College Culinary School students.

Tickets are on sale now at Hope Mission Thrift Stores. Beginning January 3, 2022, Tickets will be available at Pet Provisions in Beaufort, The Gym in Cape Carteret, Hope Mission Thrift Store in Morehead City, and Martha’s Mission in Morehead City.
