        Potters from three states are teaming up next month to help fight hunger among Greater Cincinnati's youngest poverty victims.

        Artisan members of the Clay Alliance are donating their hand-crafted masterpiece bowls for Empty Bowls, a unique fund-raiser for Kid's Cafe programs.

        The event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Nov. 12 at the Baker Hunt Foundation, 620 Greenup St., Covington.

        For an $18 donation to Kid's Cafe, individuals will feast on stew and other meals in their choice of the donated bowls and get to keep the dinnerware.

        Locally, Kid's Cafe serves more than 18,000 meals to children living in poverty in neighborhoods including Camp Washington, Over-the-Rhine, Covington, Dayton and Newport. Each site provides nutritious evening meals and activities in a safe environment.

        For information on Kid's Cafe or tickets for Empty Bowls, call Christine Willis at 482-4526. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
