Empty Bowls on March 23 a Success

Once again, the Washington College Office of Student Affairs hosted the Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Food Pantry on March 23.  The Prince Theater at the Garfield Center was full of supporters who paid $20 for a lovely handmade pottery bowl and a delicious meal.

The homemade soups were prepared by volunteers from RiverArts.  The bowls were made and donated by local potters in RiverArts Clay Studio as well as other studios in the area.

Special thanks for the beautiful bowls created by Marilee Shuman, Jessica Connor, Lolli Sherry, Doug Sassi and others. The bowls are taken home as a reminder that not everyone has a bowl full of food each day.  Joe Baker, Purchasing Manager of the Community Food Pantry, spoke about the work of the Food Pantry and thanked everyone for their support; the Food Pantry relies on local donations and efforts by individuals and groups to support the work of the Pantry. Many thanks to Kellyanne Ford and Heather Morris from Washington College, Jodi Bortz and Lani Seikaly from RiverArts and Jim Landskroener from the Garfield for their time and leadership to make this a very successful event.

All proceeds will benefit the Food Pantry.
