Northwest Missouri State University ceramics students and art faculty are again giving back to their community by hosting the eighth annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.
This year’s event is 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 1, at The Station, located on the Northwest campus near the high-rise residence halls.
Empty Bowls raises awareness of hunger in the Maryville community and funding to help combat the problem. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Ministry Center food pantry.
The event features a variety of handmade ceramic bowls and cups produced by Northwest students and faculty specifically for the event.
Each guest may choose one bowl – and have the option of adding a cup – to be used for their soup supper. This year’s menu features food from Hy-vee, A&G and Happy Garden. At the end of the meal, students wash guests’ bowls for them to take home.
Prices are $15 for one bowl and meal; or $25 for a bowl, cup and meal. Guests should pay by cash or with a check payable to The Ministry Center.
Additional sponsors of this year’s event are Ace Hardware and Northwest Campus Dining.
