All proceeds of the Marshfield Area Empty Bowls event go directly to Soup Or Socks. Soup Or Socks (aka SOS) is a food pantry and clothes closet – a volunteer-run organization dedicated to providing clothes and/or food, at no charge, for those in need throughout the greater Marshfield area. SOS does not discriminate on the basis of political affiliation, race, color, national origin, sex, age, religious creed or disability. The non-profit is located in First Presbyterian Church (200 S. Lincoln Ave, Marshfield). SOS serves an average of 1,800 people per year for food and clothing. How it works: each household receives enough food to create 3 meals a day for 5 days, for each member of the family. For an average family of 4, the estimated cost is $205. All of the money raised from Empty Bowls is used to purchase perishable items such as eggs, milk, cheese, and fruits and vegetables.
