Manna Meal’s 5th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser set for Friday

Pay-at-the-door event held at 1105 Quarrier St. in downtown Charleston

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Manna Meal, Charleston’s seven-day a week soup kitchen, is hosting its 5th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 13, from  4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church located at 1105 Quarrier St. in downtown Charleston.

The fundraising event is held in the Manna Meal dining room and helps to not only raise funds to support the mission of feeding the hungry, but also helps to raise awareness about ongoing hunger in the Kanawha Valley, organizers said.

No reservations or advance tickets is necessary. It is pay at the door.

“For a small donation of $25, you will enjoy a dinner of unlimited homemade soup, garden salad, and bread from the Charleston Bread Company. In addition, you are invited to choose your own one of a kind pottery bowl to take home. Plus, we will have a bake sale for all of your dessert needs. All bowls are handmade and donated by local WV artisans,” organizers said.


Manna Meal is a non-profit organization founded in 1976 and housed in St. John’s Episcopal Church. Its mission is to serve anyone who is hungry, no questions asked. The program is operated by a small paid staff, but depends on volunteers to assist in all aspects of its operations. Manna Meal is not government funded and is entirely dependent on the generosity of individuals, religious communities, corporations and businesses in Charleston.
