St-Stephens High School
Empty Bowl Event

The idea originated with an art teacher, currently living in Asheville, who wanted to educate her students concerning hunger in our world. Her students started the first Empty Bowls Project and the efforts have spread throughout the United States. Many organizations sponsor an event and use the donations from the event to help alleviate hunger in their communities.

The Empty Bowls idea is simple. For a donation of $15, participants can select a bowl from hundreds made by dedicated pottery students and their instructors. Guests enjoy a meal of soup donated by local restaurants and bread and desserts created by SSHS Culinary Arts students.

Students provide entertainment throughout the event. At the end of the evening, participants will leave with their empty bowl as a reminder of all who are hungry in Catawba County.

The event will be held on Saturday, March 1 from 5-7 PM at St Stephens High in the school cafeteria. Tickets can be purchased beginning in February and at the Hickory Soup Kitchen during operating hours. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling.

All proceeds will be donated to The Hickory Soup Kitchen and The Corner Table in Newton.
