CHESTERTOWN, MD—The fifth-annual Empty Bowls event to raise funds for the Kent County Food Pantry will take place Monday, March 23, at 5:00 p.m. at the Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theater in downtown Chestertown. 

For the price of a ticket (adults $20, students $15, children 12 and under $10), guests enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread and take home a handmade pottery bowl of their choosing. They also can take part in a silent auction and win door prizes. 

Volunteers from the nonprofit organization River Arts will prepare the soup, and Evergrain Bakery will donate the bread. The keepsake serving bowls are created by local potters, including Washington College students, artists from the RiverArts clay studio, and other  community members. For tickets and information, call 410-778-6118 or email student_activities@washcoll.edu. Only 100 tickets will be sold; none will be available at the door.
