Empty Bowls is an international project to help fight hunger. Third and fourth grade students at Greenwood Elementary School made bowls to donate for this special cause. The money raised by this auction event benefits the Kennett Food Cupboard. Through the collaboration of local businesses and chefs a simple meal of fresh soup, salad, and bread is served at the annual “Empty Bowls” lunch or dinner. Participants also take home an empty bowl to remind them of the people they are helping by supporting this event.
Tickets are $30.
For tickets visit www.KACSonline.net or call the Kennett Food Cupboard at 610-925-3556

Stopping the Flu Starts with You
School season is prime time for classes, homework, sports … and the flu. With the flu virus most active from October to May, getting vaccinated is the #1 way to prevent the flu and the fever, sore throat, body aches, and even serious health complications it can cause. We are partnering with the Chester County Health Department to offer a flu shot clinic to community members.
When: Thursday, October 18, 2018
Where: Kennett High School
Bring an insurance card, if you have one. There is no charge for those who do not have insurance.
For more information, visit www.chesco.org/health/flu. Same day, onsite registration only. If you have health insurance, bring your cards. All insurance types, including medical assistance, are welcome.
