Visitors to the Charles City Arts Center examine new, handmade bowls they could choose from before receiving their choice of homemade soups as part of Empty Bowls.
Volunteer Roxanne Johnson serves a table with Katie Kellogg and Fiona, 6, who filled her bowl with chili, her favorite.
"She's been looking forward to this all week," Katie Kellogg said.
