Warm soup, dessert and live music made for an enjoyable afternoon as Table hosted their third-annual Empty Bowls on the lawn of Provence of Carrboro as a fundraiser to provide healthy, emergency food aid to area children. Guests chose a keepsake bowl from potters as varied as Haand and Carrboro High School’s ceramics teacher and then chowed down on soup and desserts while enjoying live music. “Thank you for finding room in your hearts for the kids of Chapel Hill and Carrboro,” co-founder Joy MacVane told the crowd. She said Table helps hundreds of kids, but estimated that there are 2,600 food-insecure children preschool-aged through middle school in the area.
