Committee Seeking Recycled Soup Bowls for Lompoc Empty Bowls Fundraiser

The Lompoc Empty Bowls Committee is seeking recycled soup bowls for the 2015 Lompoc Empty Bowls on March 25 at the Dick DeWees Community Center.

Past attendees of Lompoc Empty Bowls luncheons are encouraged to repurpose their handcrafted soup bowls from previous events.

Through mid-March, the repurposed bowls can be dropped off to any employee at Rabobank’s Lompoc branch, 828 North H St., between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays.

Bowls may also be dropped off at the Lompoc Museum, 200 South H St., between 1 and 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 1 to 4 p.m. weekends.

Last year, nearly $29,000 was raised at Lompoc Empty Bowls to provide food to people in need in the Lompoc Valley.

Recognizing Lompoc as the geographic area in Santa Barbara County with the highest level of need, the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County has made a commitment to increase quantities of food for distribution in Lompoc. That commitment makes the upcoming Empty Bowls more important than ever, as more resources are needed.

For more information, contact Judith Monte, Foodbank development manager, at 805.937.3422 x106.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
