Empty Bowls 2016

On February 13th, the Opelika Parks & Recreation Department, in partnership with the City of Auburn Parks & Recreation Department, held their annual Empty Bowls event at the Denson Center.  More than 1,000 hand-crafted bowls were donated by local potters for the event along with other artwork that was raffled at the event.


At a recent Opelika City Council meeting, the Food Bank was presented with a check for $13,145.  This wonderful collaboration between the City of Opelika and City of Auburn will fill the bowls of many of our neighbors in need.  A huge thanks to Sheri Spain, Denson Center Pottery Director,  and many, many others whose hard work made this event such a success.
