This week's wintry blast, undoubtedly, lead to the disappointing results for the 13th annual Empty Bowl event.

It's not too late to lend a hand and have a handcrafted bowl to show for your effort.

This year's event raised about $8,000 less than last year and attendance was down by about 600 people. That's not good for the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, which provides donated foot for 140 hunger-fighting programs in northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin.

"The community is invited to stop by the food bank and choose from our display of beautiful handcrafted bowls created by local artists and students," Shaye Moris, the food bank's executive director. "Community support of this event is critical since it is our only fundraiser."

Bowls will be available at a cost of $15 at the food bank, 4503 Airpark Boulevard, Duluth until April 20. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday.
