Empty bowls fundraiser

Community Services Agency is hosting its annual "Empty Bowls: Souper Bowl," fundraiser to raise money for the homeless in Mountain View and Los Altos on Sunday, April 10.

For the $15 price of admission, community members who attend the 20th Empty Bowl dinner will be able to choose a handcrafted bowl from the potters at Orchard Valley Ceramic Art Guild and fill it with the soup of their choice from local restaurants. After dinner, diners get to keep the bowls.

The fundraiser will be held from 4-6 p.m. at The Central Seventh Day Adventist Church at 1425 Springer Road in Mountain View. Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased online at

All proceeds from the gathering will go towards Community Services Agency's Alpha Omega Homeless Services program.

"In these very difficult economic times we are seeing an ever increasing number of homeless individuals, including children," said CSA Executive Director Tom Myers. "Our commitment to them will never waiver."
