Ohio Hi-Point to host 3rd annual Empty Bowls of Logan County

Has your bowl ever been empty? Food insecurity is a hard reality for many of our neighbors and Second Harvest Food Bank is working hard to alleviate this inequity. You can too. 

Empty Bowls of Logan County, an event to raise awareness about the growing problem of hunger in Logan County, will be held Thursday, May 5, 2016 at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center in the high school cafeteria from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The event is a fundraiser for Second Harvest Food Bank for Logan, Champaign and Clark Counties. For $15, patrons will receive a beautiful hand-crafted ceramic bowl (made by local potters, artists and high school students) and a simple meal of soup and bread. All proceeds benefit the Food Bank, which supports Logan County member agencies- all local food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters.

Empty Bowls, May 5, 5-7 p.m.

Beautiful bowls have been hand-crafted by students at Bellefontaine High School.

Soup Donors participating this year include Bob Evans Farms, Green Hills Community, Middleburg United Methodist Church, Tim Hortons Café & Bake Shop, The Whitmore House, Ohio Hi-Point Culinary Arts Students, Union Station Café and Aunt Millie’s Restaurant.  Domino’s is providing bread.

It is estimated that 14.6% of Logan County resident are food insecure.  Food insecurity refers USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods.  Food insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time.  Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods.

“Empty Bowls is a wonderful way for Second Harvest Food Bank to bring the community together.  The event wouldn’t be possible without the support of local businesses, restaurants, and individuals joining together in raising awareness to end hunger.  We look forward to seeing you,” said Tyra Jackson, Executive Director Second Harvest Food Bank.

As the only food bank in Clark, Champaign, and Logan Counties, Second Harvest Food Bank distributes over six million pounds of food annually, with over six hundred and ten thousand pounds going directly to benefit Logan County residents.  This amount of food equates to over 510,00 meals distributed to food insecure residents of Logan County.  Second Harvest Food Bank’s daily operation consists of sourcing and gathering food, sorting and cataloging the food, then warehousing the inventory to be distributed to agency members throughout a three county service area.

Second Harvest Food Bank member agencies in Logan County include Buckeye Gospel Barn, Our Daily Bread, Five Loaves Food Pantry, St. Vincent DePaul Bellefontain & Russels Point, Caring Friends, United Christian Services, Give & Take, Recovery Zone Bellefontaine.  These agencies along with the Second Harvest Food Bank’s Mobile Pantry and Senior Commodities Food Program serve seven thousand Logan County residents annually.

Second Harvest Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and the Ohio Association of Foodbanks.  Second Harvest Food Bank is responsible for safe handling of all food products adhering to state and federal guidelines including providing member oversight to pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters.

Join us on Thursday, May 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for a modest meal with a powerful message.
