The Empty Bowls Project is a service learning project. Service Learning is applying an activity learned in the classroom to a community need. Students create a clay bowl in Art for a great cause. This year the project is supporting the Busses ‘n Backpacks program, which gives backpacks filled with food to local students in need. Students donate $5 to keep their bowl, and all of the money collected goes to Busses ‘n Backpacks. If they don’t donate I take the bowls to a dinner that is on April 28th at First United Methodist Church. The bowls are then available for anyone who donates that night to take home. Tickets to the dinner are $5 and include a ceramic bowl, entertainment, and dinner.
