For the first time ever, Ponoka Family and Community Support Services’ (FCSS’s) Empty Bowls event completely sold out of its roughly 200 bowls, even with a different format due to COVID-19.
In fact, despite the chilly weather, most of the bowls were gone in the first hour-and-a-half, says Shelly Van Eaton, FCSS program coordinator.
This year, the bowls were on a table outside of FCSS for shoppers to come and take their pick.
Many of the soup coupons were donated back to help feed the hungry.
If you missed a chance to pick up a bowl, the Ponoka Potters Guilds’ wares will be on offer at their Winter Show and Sale on Friday, Nov. 20 from 4:3o to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
