    MIDDLESEX — Homemade soup and handcrafted bowls by local potters will be the highlights at the Central Vermont Empty Bowl Benefit, a fundraiser for the Vermont Foodbank on Feb. 16.

    The fundraiser runs from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at The Mud Studio in the Red Hen complex on Route 2 in Middlesex. Admission for adults is $25, which includes a bowl, soup and accompaniments. Children under 5 years old get in for free, and tickets for ages 5 to 18 are $5 for a meal only. All proceeds will go to the Vermont Foodbank.

    Those attending the event will select a ceramic bowl to take home and will be offered two choices of soup to either eat at the studio or carry out.

    A number of businesses have already stepped up to support the event. Cabot Creamery, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, Dog River Farm, Hunger Mountain Coop, North Branch Café, Pete’s Greens, Red Hen Bakery, Sarducci’s, Willow Moon Farm and several professional area potters have all signed on to make this event a huge success for the Vermont Foodbank.
