Soup Bowls For Hunger


The Cape Cod Potters and the Cape Cod Regional Technical High School are sponsoring the 26th annual Soup Bowls for Hunger on Wednesday, April 11,2018. Last year we raised $14,579 for the Family Pantry.

The Boston Food bank has credited the Pantry with being a real solution to the hunger problems that exist on Cape Cod and as a role model for other start ups. The Family Pantry is committed to providing food to people in need from the entire Cape. Recently they established a food pantry at the Cape Cod Community College and they now have a delivery truck that drops food off at senior centers for patrons who do not have a means of transporting themselves.

This year there will be three seatings: 5:30, 6:00 and 6:30. Tickets will be $18 each and will entitle the holder to soup, bread and a hand crafted pottery bowl to take home as a reminder of the meal's purpose. Ticket order forms will go on line at our website around the first week in March.

Once again we are asking potters and students and schools with a ceramics program to assist us with this very important fundraiser by making and decorating pottery soup bowls. Bowls may be wheel thrown or hand built but each bowl should be able to hold a generous cup and a half of soup.

Soup bowl donations may be dropped off at Kemp Pottery in Orleans, Heart Pottery in Brewster, Ron Dean Pottery in Marstons Mills or to Shelley Fenily at Clay Club, which meets the first Monday of the month at Cotuit Center for the Arts. Thank you all in advance for your help with this fundraiser.
