Empty Bowls brings about full stomachs

Liliana Macioce, Entertainment Editor

North Hills High School is hosting its annual Empty Bowls event to raise funds for the North Hills Community Food Bank during Curriculum Night on February 27 at 5:30 p.m. in the high school Cafeteria B.

A donation of $10 covers the cost of a handmade bowl and soup of choice, and all proceeds will benefit the North Hills Community Food Bank. For the past seven years, students in Mr. Jason Hillegas’ pottery classes and Mrs. Michelle Medic’s cooking classes have made bowls and soup in preparation for Curriculum Night. Advanced and Beginning Pottery students in Mr. Hillegas’ classes have created more than 200 unique hand made bowls for this event during class and have put in time after school, as well. Mrs. Medic’s students in her Today’s Food classes are working hard preparing the soup (homemade potato soup and vegetable barley soup) and breads for dinner. Mrs. Medic anticipates raising $1,500-$2,000 to benefit the food bank.

The North Hills Food Bank is a local non-profit food bank that has been helping families for 25 years. Participating in North Hills Empty Bowls event will help these families tremendously.
