SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – You can help people in need while you eat on Wednesday night.

The Empty Bowls Project will be at the Corinthian in Sharon starting at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 13.

The event is put on by the Community Food Warehouse to raise awareness about hunger in Mercer County. There, you can pay $5 for soup and bread, or $15 to get soup, bread and a locally-handmade bowl of your choice.

The point of the project is to remind people in the community that there are hungry people, and you can help, according to Lori Weston, executive director of the Community Food Warehouse.

“We would really like people to take those bowls home, put them in a prominent place in their house, so it will remind them every single day that there are people that are hungry,” Weston said.

The event is from 4 to 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the door.
