Empty Bowls Project - The Merced County Community Action Agency works to help those living in poverty.
MCCAA will be hosting its sixth annual Empty Bowl Project to fight hunger in Merced County on Thursday, February 2, 2017, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church Merced (500 Buena Vista Drive, Merced, CA 95348.)
For a donation of $20.00, participants will receive a bowl of gourmet soup, bread, and a handcrafted bowl to keep as a reminder of all the people who are hungry in our community. Community members come together to paint the bowls that will be used at the Empty Bowl dinner.
All proceeds from this event will be used to feed the homeless at our "D" Street Homeless Shelter, which operates 365 days a year and provides 50 emergency shelter beds each night. Over 18,000 meals per year are served at our "D" Street Homeless Shelter.
