Mother’s Cupboard Community Kitchen will have its annual Soup Bowl Benefit from 5 to 7 p.m. April 10 at The Seasons Lodge, 560 State Road in Nashville.

Tickets are $25. Advance sale tickets are available at the Brown County IGA and from Mother’s Cupboard board members. Tickets are available at the door, including children’s tickets for $5.

Mother’s Cupboard provides free hot meals 364 days a year to anyone who asks for food. Its new location is on the Brown County Fairgrounds off Old State Road 46, just east of Nashville, and serves a hot meal from 4 to 6 p.m. daily. It also operates a food bank and distributes government commodities.

The kitchen is funded by donations from individuals and endowments administered by the Brown County Community Foundation. Mother’s Cupboard distributes over 4,000 meals a month, no questions asked.
