Lakeshore Food Club to hold Empty Bowls fundraiser

LUDINGTON — The Lakeshore Food Club will host its third annual Empty Bowls event, Thursday, September 21, 2023 at The Lake House, 704 Maritime Drive, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. 

The event will include food catered by Jamesport Brewing along with drinks, and live music.

Lakeshore Food Club Executive Director O’Nealya Gronstal, and others, will share stories of impact and give programming updates. Bowls handcrafted by local artisans will be available for purchase.

“We are excited to host yet another event that combines enjoyment with the opportunity to partner with us as we create a food-secure community,” said Gronstal. “The struggles that many of our neighbors face daily are escalating and our challenge to assist them has been surging, as well.”

“The latest findings show more than 45% of Mason County residents struggle with food insecurity. In addition, more than 30% of Mason County residents live in what the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) defines as a food desert,” said Gronstal. “So far in 2023, our membership has grown by more than 100% and our food costs have increased by more than 85%. The community’s support is needed now more than ever. There is still so much work to do in our community to provide dignified access to fresh, healthy foods and combat food insecurity, and we cannot do it alone.”

Tickets are $75 per person. Sponsorships are still available. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
