Thursday, April 14th is this year's Empty Bowls event for the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. The goal of the event is to raise awareness and educate the community on the issue of hunger.

The special guest this year is Chris Soules from the hit TV shows, The Bachelorette, The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars. 

With the purchase of a $25 ticket, participants will receive a  simple meal of soup and bread and also a handcrafted bowl to keep as a symbol of hunger in our community. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in both a silent and live auction. The event will take place at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in Waterloo.
