Empty Bowls luncheon planned for Feb. 23 at Mylan Park community center

MORGANTOWN — Thirteen years ago, the first Empty Bowls luncheon in Monongalia County was held at the First Presbyterian Church in Morgantown.
It became too big to stay there, so it was moved to St. Mary Roman Catholic Church in Star City.
As it continued to grow, it was moved to the Mylan Park community center, where it remains today.
The 13th annual luncheon is planned for 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Hazel and J.W. Ruby Community Center at Mylan Park.
It is one of the largest social and volunteer events in the area, according to a press release from the Empty Bowls Monongalia organization.
Relying on donations and volunteer help, the event provides a variety of soups, plus bread, cookies and a drink for $20. Plus, each attendee gets to pick out a hand-painted bowl to use at the event and take home.
