Fundraiser for Community Kitchen being held this weekend

While many businesses and churches around West Kentucky were closed this week due to the snow, the Community Kitchen in Paducah kept its doors open.

It’s a warm place to stay for more than 30 people right now. They’re even getting three meals a day.

The Community Kitchen is funded by your donations, and here’s how you can help.

On Saturday, Empty Bowls will take place at the Julian Carroll Convention Center in Paducah.

For just $15 you get a handmade ceramic bowl which you can fill up with food from almost 20 areas restaurants.

After you’re done eating, the bowl is yours to keep.

Money from the event goes to support the Community Kitchen.

Organizers say they have more than 1,500 bowls ready to go. 

The event is being held from 11:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
