Charity comes in all forms, and sometimes it can be found in a simple bowl of soup. For the last 12 years, Community Caregivers of Greater Derry has hosted their annual “Potter’s Bowl” to raise money to continue providing services for disabled and elderly locals in need. This year it will be on Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Pinkerton Academy Freshman Cafeteria.
The Potter’s Bowl offers patrons that beloved cold-weather comfort food, hot fresh soup served in bowls crafted by local vendors. The bowls are hand made and donated by artisans, some of whom come to the event.
“We get pottery bowls from artists all over the state,” said Julie Levesque of Community Caregivers. She exclaimed that “it’s really nice” when the potters come to the dinner. “They set up a table and people choose a bowl with the price of a ticket.” There are even bowls just for kids to make the event more family friendly.
