Enjoy a bowl of soup Thursday and help fight local hunger

Posted:
NEAR ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

It's one of the most rewarding meals you can have all year. 

The Empty Bowls fundraiser for Channel One Regional Food Bank is back at the Rochester Art Center. 

For the 13th year, come enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread provided by local restaurants and bakeries. Then, choose a donated hand-painted bowl to take home with you.

One in ten Minnesotans do not have enough to eat. But for every ticket sold, Channel One can provide enough food for 40 meals. 

Single tickets are $15 dollars at the door. A family of four can enjoy a meal for $35.

The event runs from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.

    Hundreds gather at 160-year-old pioneer church in Lenora for Christmas service

    If you visit Lenora United Methodist Church you'll see a Christmas service the way Laura Ingalls Wilder would have. The church was built in 1856, making it the first church in Fillmore county. Hundreds come out every year to enjoy the festivities the old fashioned way: with a wood stove, oil lamps, and pump organ.
