ST. ALBANS, Vt. (WCAX) - Tons of community members turned out in St. Albans on Saturday to support Martha’s Community Kitchen.

Saturday marked their 6th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.

One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly back to the kitchen to help feed the food insecure.

For this event, local potters donate handmade bowls, the kitchen makes soup, and the community comes to eat.

Though it was a take-out style event this year, organizers say the support was still strong, and the turnout was great.

“The community has supported us, and really they’re supporting themselves. Anybody that needs a helping hand or wants a warm meal, anybody, you, me, anybody. It doesn’t have to be a homeless individual, anybody that needs anything just stop by. So, it’s great. I love it,” said Jason Wetherby of Martha’s Community Kitchen.

Martha’s Community Kitchen served over 40,000 meals last year alone.

They’re open and cooking every single day, even holidays.
