Braden River Middle to host 15th Empty Bowls Luncheon

The National Junior Honor Society Chapter at Braden River Middle School will host its 15th Annual Empty Bowls Luncheon on Wednesday, Dec. 11, from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the school.

 The luncheon's aim is to "help fight hunger and demonstrate the strong spirit of community in Manatee County," according to a news release. The suggested donation is $10, with proceeds going to the Our Daily Bread soup kitchen in Bradenton.

 NJHS students have been busy making clay bowls (shaping, firing, glazing and decorating), which will serve as reminders of those who go hungry in the community every day. Publix and Crispers have again donated the soup and the bread for Wednesday's luncheon.

 For more information, contact teacher and NJHS adviser Lisa Brewer-Norton at 941-751-7080.
