Washingtonville High School’s National Art Honor Society is happy to host its Fourth Annual Empty Bowls WHS Dinner & Fundraiser benefiting the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley & the Country Kids Food Pantry. This event will take place Friday, March 22, 2019 (snow date: March 29th) from 530-8pm in the High School large and middle cafeterias.
This year we will return to our original format of a dinner buffet. Guests will make a suggested donation for a handcrafted ceramic bowl and then partake in our dinner buffet with goods donated by Washingtonville community members, restaurants, and businesses. At the end of the event the guests leave with an "empty bowl" and a full stomach, which will serve as a reminder of all those who are struggling with food insecurity.
Our first three Empty Bowls WHS Fundraisers were a huge success. Each year guests purchased bowls made by students, parents, community members, staff, faculty, and local artists. In these three years combined we have raised $12,850 to feed families in need.
This project is about art + food + community + activism, an equation that can only = success! We wish to invite you to participate in one of our Empty Bowls WHS workshops, volunteer or donate to our event, or order our official Empty Bowls WHS aprons. Please see links and deadlines below:
