The Inspired Minds Art Center will host the third annual Empty Bowl Fundraiser on Jan. 21 at 121 Main St., Buda, with proceeds dedicated to the Hays County Food Bank. Last year’s fundraiser raised $4,500 for the HCBF with every dollar equating to four meals. However, with rising food prices, this year’s fundraiser will mean $1 equals three meals.

A $35 donation will reserve an individual’s spot and a unique, handmade bowl donated by more than a dozen artists and IMAC students.

The bowl and $35 donation are accompanied by soup made by local restaurants, including Amici Cucina Italiana, Zoi Market and more.
