The Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma held its 21st annual Empty Bowls Hunger Awareness Dinner and Auction on April 25, with the goal of raising enough money to provide 2.4 million meals to feed those in need in Oklahoma and raise awareness of the hunger issues in the state.

For each dollar raised, the Food Bank can distribute the equivalent of four meals.

The event included a soup and salad dinner with a keepsake bowl, a raffle, restaurant and wine pulls, and a live auction.

The bowls serve as an event focal point each year, and as a way to highlight the artists, a potter from Waterworks Art Studio was on hand to provide a live pottery demonstration.
