And savor one of Bastrop’s most anticipated events:  Saturday, Feb.22—from 11 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m.—in the Bastrop High School Cafeteria (1614 Chambers St.).   

Tickets are $20 per person for all the soup and dessert you want to sample (and your
choice of a pottery soup bowl by a local school-age artist); children 12 and under eat
free.  Tickets may be purchased at the door or, in advance, at the Pantry (1201 Pine),
the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce (927 Main) and the Sugar Shack (114 Loop 150 W.)   

Bastrop’s Empty Bowl Project is a longstanding partnership—now in its tenth year—
among the Bastrop County Emergency Food Pantry & Support Center, the Bastrop
Independent School District, restaurants and caterers throughout Bastrop County as
well as local artists and businesses and members of Bastrop County Extension
Education clubs.

Proceeds from the event help fund the Pantry’s “emergency food” program, bridging
the gap between the basic nutritional needs of many county residents—young, old,
individuals, families—and their ability to address these needs on their own.   Event
proceeds, grants and donations also empower the Pantry’s work inform, counsel,
assist and lift the thousands among us—one out of every seven Bastrop County
residents—living in poverty.
