Empty Bowls Luncheon

Our Seward Kiwanis Club hosted its 7th annual "Empty Bowls Luncheon"today. The picture is of our Club President, Wess Robothan, Scott Young of the Lincoln Food Bank and Teresa Dredge, chair of the empty bowls committee. The event provides funding for our Back Pack Program. This  is a program that was started in Lincoln several years ago by Scott to provide food for the weekend for elementary school  students that are eligible for subsidized school lunches. The food is placed in backpacks and sent home with students on Friday evenings. Today's luncheon included the special soups donated and served by 14 food vendors. Drinks and desserts were also served. There were several key contributors and many of us bought tickets above the $25.00 minimum. The Art Department at Concordia continues to mold small bowls for each of the participants as a gift. The event attracts several hundred people and was held at the Harvest Hall down at the Fair Grounds after outgrowing the space at the Civic Center where it was held in previous years. A Great Event. Thanks Scott, Wess and Teresa.
