Once again, Oxford is preparing to host Oxford Empty Bowls, a benefit soup luncheon that celebrates art and service as we bring together the works of Miami University and Talawanda High School ceramics students, Oxford area potters, artists young and old, and local cooks to raise much-needed funds for the Oxford Community Choice Pantry's programs that supply food to local families in need. This year, Empty Bowls will be held on Saturday, November 11th from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at the Oxford Community Arts Center. How it works: At the luncheon, guests choose from amongst a collection of beautiful bowls created, decorated and donated by Miami University and Talawanda High School students and Oxford area potters. Their bowls are then filled with their choice of soups made by local cooks. Luncheon guests then keep their bowls to use or display at home and to serve as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. Homemade bread and desserts, and beverages donated by local businesses will also be served. Cost: $10; children 10 and under eat for free (bowl not included). We hope you will join us for this wonderful event!
