Empty bowls, full stomachs: Eighth annual Empty Bowls raises money to fight hunger

Echo Press

The bowls were made by hand, but many hands contributed in other ways during the annual Empty Bowls Project on Monday, March 12, at Alexandria Area High School.

The event...

Attendees at Empty Bowls could purchase a bowl for $10, then help themselves to the chili at the event. There was also a silent auction. Proceeds from both go toward fighting hunger. (Beth Leipholtz / Echo Press)
High school students in pottery courses typically make the bowls sold at Empty Bowls. This year, students from Garfield Elementary School also made some of them. Each bowl contains a thank you note. (Beth Leipholtz / Echo Press)
