Waste Not, a Phoenix-based organization dedicated to collecting and distributing perishable food to a diverse network of agencies that feed the hungry, will host its 20th annual Empty Bowls Event from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, in the Grotto at Arizona Center, 400 E. Van Buren.

All the one-of-a-kind bowls are handmade and donated to Waste Not by the Arizona Clay Association. Most of the bowls will be available for a $12 donation, which helps support Waste Not's food recovery and delivery program. Other specialty items will also be available in the Boutique on-site. As in past years, Sam's Café will supply lunch to all that purchase a bowl.

The Empty Bowls Event was created to raise awareness for the great number of Valley residents that go hungry each day. In fact, the $12 cost of the bowl provides 75 people with a nutritious meal. Waste Not's refrigerated trucks pick up good, perishable food from local restaurants, caterers and resorts, which is then delivered to over 100 local agencies that supply food and meals to those in need.
