This event has been postponed to a later date!

You are invited to a community meal at the Agriculture Park’s MU Health Care Pavilion!

Join us for a FREE meal of soup and bread. Handcrafted ceramics from MU Clay Club, Derby Ridge Elementary School, and Locust Street Expressive Arts Elementary School can be purchased to support CCUA’s Planting for the Pantry Program. Pottery Island will be on site through both lunch and dinner, to help you paint your own bowl! 50% of the paint your own bowl proceeds, will go to Planting for the Pantry. Donations made to Planting for the Pantry ensure that fresh local food from the Agriculture Park is distributed to The Food Bank of Central & Northeast Missouri, as well as support CCUA’s garden education programming. Attendees at Empty Bowls can take home handmade bowls for a suggested $5-20 donation. We will have free kids activities, live music and a great family friendly atmosphere.
