Empty Bowl fundraiser to benefit resource center

By ThisWeek Community News  • 

Residents can fill their bowls and someone else's during the annual Empty Bowl Project fundraiser to be held Friday, Feb. 1, at Thomas Worthington High School.

For $10, diners will be able to purchase a bowl made by Thomas Worthington ceramics students and have it filled with soup made by the school's food and fitness students.

Another choice is to purchase a bowl of soup without the handmade bowl for $5.

Proceeds will go to the Worthington Resource Center and Food Pantry, which provides food to needy families living in the Worthington school district.

The simple supper is meant to remind people of the hunger in the world, ceramics teacher Alan Spencer said.

More than 50 students have been making bowls for the past several weeks, and he expects to have 100 ready in time for dinner. The menu will include vegetarian and nonvegetarian choices. The supper will begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 7:45 p.m. and will be served in the school cafeteria.

Diners are invited to stay for a production of Anything Goes, the classic Cole Porter Broadway musical to be presented by the drama department at the school. It will begin at 8 p.m. in the school auditorium.
