Students from Allendale Columbia School are working to make this world a better place one bowl and one meal at a time. They’re getting ready for their third Empty Bowls event.
Empty Bowls is an international grassroots project with the hopes of improving communities, and the world.
“This whole experience combines entrepreneurship, business, and art, and service and global engagement,” says ceramics teacher Lori Wun.
The middle school students have been working on their bowls in class. This year the money raised will support the Summer Meals program, which provides free breakfast and lunch to students in Rochester. They hope to raise $1,500, which would make it their biggest event yet.
“It was more of a group effort and we all contributed,” says 7th-grader Nolan Redhead.
The bowls made by Allendale Columbia students as well as local artists will be available at the Rochester Brainery on Sunday, December 3 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
