Empty Bowls Fundraiser Gets a New Twist

Members of the National Art Honor Society (NAHS) hosted the return of an in-person Empty Bowls fundraising event, with a twist.
 Saint Joseph Academy Art students sold hand-painted ceramic bowls for a $10 donation. In years past, purchasers had the opportunity to fill their bowls with soup. This year, bowls could be filled with delicious ice cream sundaes.
NAHS member Mora Forkapa ’22 shared, “It is such a fun event. You get ice cream and support the Cleveland Foodbank while also getting to take home a one-of-a-kind bowl that speaks to you!”
Saint Joseph Academy began hosting its Empty Bowls event in 2016 and has continued offering it each year with the exception of 2020 (due to COVID-19). Proceeds from Empty Bowls benefit the Greater Cleveland Foodbank, an organization whose mission is to bridge the meal gap, connecting individuals with the nutritious meals they need.

Empty Bowls is a grassroots movement by artists around the world to raise money for food-related charities in their communities.
Attendees were also invited to check out the Spring Art Show featuring a variety of students works.
