Empty Bowl benefits Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, providing food for more than 4.2 million meals annually to people in need throughout northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin.
Enjoy a delicious soup meal FREE of charge. Buy beautiful handmade bowls for just $20 each.

South Ridge 9-12 Sculpture and 7th grade Design students are creating bowls to donate to the local Empty Bowl fundraiser for our area Food Shelf. One bowl/student will be given to the fundraiser which in turn will be sold for $20. The money will go into our local food shelf account.

The event is an annual fundraiser. Local chefs donate a variety of soups and bread which people purchase with their choice of bowl. The goal is not only to support the food shelf program, but a way for the local arts communities to give of themselves. Many families are struggling to feed themselves. As a community we want to do what we can to make life a bit better for all.

Open clay studio at South Ridge HS Art studio open Tuesday’s after school, March 22nd and April 5th.
