CAREFREE – On Friday, October 16, 2015, the annual Foothills Empty Bowls Project to honor World Hunger Day will be held at the Carefree Town Center in Carefree, Ariz., from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The event luncheon meal, to be catered by Cave Creek’s Harold’s Corral, will be served in handmade ceramic or glass bowls. For a minimum donation of $15, guests can select their own unique bowl made by members and friends of the Sonoran Arts League, and keep it as a lasting reminder of world hunger. All proceeds from the lunch will be donated to the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center, and will support its ongoing effort to provide emergency food and services to area families in need of assistance.

The Empty Bowls Project is sponsored by the Sonoran Arts League, the Town of Carefree, Harold’s Corral, Marjon Ceramics & Laguna Clay and Costco. Other donors are Basha’s, Saguaro and Cactus Shadows High School students, Arizona Clay, Sonoran Trails MS, Paradise Valley Community College ceramics students and local potters and artists who made and donated the bowls and auction items.

For more information, call 480.488.6070. Proceeds benefit the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center. Carefree Town Center is located at 101 Easy Street in Carefree, Ariz.
