People lined up at the Grove Plaza in downtown Boise to pick out an empty bowl to benefit the Idaho Foodbank.

Throughout the year, hand painted bowls have been contributed by professional and amateur artist and are offered for sale for about $10.

The proceeds go directly to the Idaho Foodbank and attendees were able to fill their new kitchenware piece with hot soup.

For many Idahoans, the event has become an holiday tradition.

"It varies entirely, from actual artists who are creating these artisan bowls all the way down to our six-year-olds and everyone in between doing really fantastic work because they know its to support those who are in need," Morgan Wilson from the Idaho Foodbank said.
