Empty Bowls Project to bring hunger awareness




WOODLAND — To raise money and awareness in the effort to end hunger, Woodland Action is doing an Empty Bowls Project for the second time. On the evening of Nov. 9, attendees will get a meal of soup and bread provided by local restaurants, as well as a hand-thrown ceramic bowl.

The Empty Bowls Project is an international movement that uses the “act of creating bowls as both a symbolic visual of people in need and as a means to help fund local services,” according to a news release from Woodland Action, a food bank and community service center.

Woodland Action partnered with Clark College, supported by a grant from Arts of Clark County, to put on the event. There will be a silent auction and ceramic pieces made by both professional and student artists. Local restaurants are providing the soup and bread, which will be served by Woodland High School students. It all takes place 6:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Woodland High School commons.
