Event: SOUP - The Bowl that Keeps Feeding
Purpose: Kids helping local families in crisis
Date: Sunday, November 15, 2009
Time: 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Location: Fresh Starts Cooking School, Homeward Bound, Novato
Fee: Please buy tickets in advance: $10/person, includes a meal of soup + bread plus a homemade soup bowl for you to bring home

What's Cooking, a local cooking school for children, is partnering with Studio4Art, a children's art studio in Novato to raise funds for local families in crisis. The art studio has been working hard to make and glaze soup bowls with kids, and What's Cooking is working with local school children to make homemade soup.

On November 15th, our event will bring members of the community together to share a meal of soup, served in the bowl of your choice. When guests leave with their empty bowl, they will be reminded of the hungry children in our community and that they have personally done something to make a difference. All of the money that we collect from donations and ticket sales will be donated to Homeward Bound of Marin's Emergency Family Shelter to help feed families in crisis.
