Nicolet to host soup benefit

RHINELANDER - Nicolet College will host the Empty Bowls soup benefit in less than two weeks. The program is designed to raise money to help local food pantries. Empty bowls is an international program designed to raise hunger awareness that has been around for more than 20 years.

"We'll have about 200 bowls made by potters and local wood-workers," said Nicolet Art Gallery Director Katy Ralph. "People come in and they choose a bowl that they like and it costs $15. They get soup and bread, a small serving of soup and bread made by our culinary students."

Guests get to keep the bowl after the soup benefit concludes. Volunteers for the program raise almost $2,500 during the last fundraiser in 2013. They hope to keep up the effort for the benefit this year.
