SEAVIEW, Wash. — Empty Bowls, an annual fundraiser that benefits families struggling to eat healthy meals each day, will be held 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Peninsula Church Center, 5000 N. Place in Seaview.

For a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children, attendees get all the soup they can eat, a concert and a chance to win a piece of art.

This year many wonderful works of art are being donated by local artists for raffle. Raffle tickets are $1 per ticket, $5 for six tickets.

The peninsula’s Oyster Crackers will perform live music from noon to 1 p.m. Local restaurants and bakeries are donating soup and bread for the meal.

Proceeds go to local organizations that distribute food to people in need.

The Food4Kids Backpack program provides weekend food backpacks for children in the Ocean Beach Schools who may participate in the free/reduced lunch program during the week but struggle over the weekends. His Supper Table and The Community Table provide balanced meals for those in need weekly; the latter also provides food to shut-ins.
