7th annual Empty Bowls fundraising event
Wednesday, Feb. 12, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Empty Bowls is a nation-wide grassroots movement to help combat hunger in our local communities. Purchase of a ceramic bowl (hand-made and glazed by Coastal students, faculty, and staff) will entitle you to a free helping of soup generously donated by the Visual Arts faculty. All proceeds of this event will be donated to local organizations that support the food insecure. In 2018 we raised just over $1200. Help us make this year’s event even bigger so we can fight hunger and fill the empty bowls in our own community!
