The Empty Bowls Event, offering hundreds of handmade bowls in return for donations to help feed people, will return to Red Bank and Toms River this September. Participants may choose any or as many bowls as they like in exchange for a $20 donation for each bowl. The donations provide a meal for someone in the community through JBJ Soul Kitchen. A portion of the donation helps to sustain the Art Alliance of Monmouth County.
Members of the public are invited to participate on the following Saturdays:
Toms River, Sept. 22 12:00pm-7:00pm
JBJ Soul Kitchen, 1769 Hooper Avenue
Red Bank, September 29 12:00pm-7:00pm
JBJ Soul Kitchen, 207 Monmouth Street
At both venues, event will be held rain or shine. The restaurants will serve dinner as usual from 5 to 7 p.m. Light refreshments and snacks will be served from 12:00pm-3:00pm.
