LEWISTON – The first annual Empty Bowls Project, held to benefit Trinity Jubilee Center, a local soup kitchen, was a success. Nearly 100 diners purchased handmade ceramic bowls and were served a supper of soups, breads and desserts.

The project received support and assistance from local artists and businesses.

Music was provided by Greg Boardman and Jesse Gagne-Hall with their young string students, Amy Young, Matt Lamare, Hannah Rodrigue and Rebecca Grube.

Trinity Jubilee Center, a United Way agency located at 247 Bates St., has been offering outreach services to persons living in poverty in the Lewiston-Auburn community since 1989.

Services offered include free meals four days a week, assistance to parents and children with formula and diapers, advocacy and linkage to housing and social services and a place to go off the street to get warm.
