Special to Iredell Free News

Fifth Street Ministries will host its Empty Bowls event on Sunday, March 26.

Sponsored by Iredell Health System, the fundraiser will be held from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Statesville. The event will feature four types of soup from local restaurants (one vegetarian option), drinks and dessert.

Fifth Street Executive Director Michele Knapp will speak to the challenge of hunger in our community.

Proceeds from the event will support programs for those most in need: shelter services, community kitchen, My Sister’s House, Veterans Transitional Housing and the PATH house.

First Presbyterian Church is located at 125 N. Meeting Street in Statesville.


There are two ticket options. The first is a $25 ticket that includes the meal and a handmade bowl provided by CrEate Pottery Studio. The other option is a $10 ticket which includes the meal and does not include a bowl to take home. Tickets at the door will be $30.
