In its eighth year, Empty Bowls has become not only a major fundraiser for one of Baltimore's oldest and busiest charities but a popular event for which people are willing to get in line early. Half an hour before doors opened Saturday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, more than 200 ticket-holders waited eagerly for the first seating of soups from some of the region's best restaurants. "People who've been here before know to come early," said John Schiavone, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore, the host and beneficiary of an event that has grown so much since 2007 that organizers had to split it into lunch and dinner sessions.

When Raissa Howera was growing up in the Washington area, she took part in protests supporting independence for Ukraine, the land of her father's family. Such activism was typical, she said. Her adolescence was marked by frustration with the problems that trouble the world and a sense of helplessness to change it. Now, as an art teacher at Oakland Mills Middle School in Columbia, Howera inspires students' creativity with social justice and outreach projects. This year, her students are taking part in projects such as Empty Bowls, an anti-hunger initiative by the North Carolina-based nonprofit Imagine/RENDER Group.

MOST OF US are fortunate to enjoy delicious meals every day and find pleasure in the feeling of a full stomach afterward. That wasn't the case for those who dined at South Carroll High School's Empty Bowls Banquet. After eating a simple meal of a bowl of soup, a slice of bread and a glass of water, most left the dinner the same way they arrived - hungry. That's how organizers of last night's banquet wanted diners to feel. The school's annual Empty Bowls Banquet is a fund-raising event for Human Services Programs of Carroll County Inc., a private, nonprofit organization that operates and administers homeless shelters in the county.
