Sixth annual Empty Bowls/Bols du Partage fundraiser

By Gordon Lambie

Champlain College Lennoxville and Bishop’s University are getting ready to hosting their sixth annual Empty Bowls/Bols du Partage fundraiser at the Hope Community Church on November 10th. Dating back to the 1990’s, the Empty Bowls international project has been adopted by many communities to fight hunger in their very own neighborhood, with funds from the local event being divided between the Lennoxville Elementary School breakfast program, the Lennoxville and District Women’s Centre food bank, the Cornerstone food bank, and the BU/Champlain pastoral fund. “We’ve raised between $5,000 and $7,000 every year,” said Lucy Doheny, the local potter who helps to coordinate the project.
