Karah rucker: yeah daniel, the hope organization hosted about thirteen churches who donated soups.

There was also other bakery foods ---- sold and auctioned to help raise money for their cause.

The money will go towards feeding people in their local community.

For six years, the hope organization has hosted their empty bowl fundraiser.

They say each year, it just gets bigger.

"it's like i said, like a family reunion because we are a small community, we know most of everybody.

It's just a blessing for everyone."

They say the empty bowl is meant to be fun and the community has a good time taste testing all kinds of soups.

"we encourage people to go table to table and try the difference soups.

It's fun for one thing, it's a good chance to get together, and it's a good fundraiser."

The jacksonville community came together for a cause they support.

"just the premise that there are empty bowls in our city--their service is just invaluable to our community and i'm very thankful for them."

"this is my first year doing it and i think i'll be back because i'm having a whole lot of fun.

You know, you have to pay it forward."

The hope organization says all profits go toward helping those in their hometown.

"we aren't just giving people a hand out, we're here to we're here to help them and give them a hand up and to where they can eventually work toward being self-sustaining."
