For many in Cook County, November is the time to make sure the pantry and freezer’s stocked before the snow flies in earnest. Yet one in ten Cook County residents struggles with hunger. 4.4 percent of Minnesotans have “very low food security,” meaning they not only worry about or struggle to get enough food, but they actually eat less or skip meals because there isn’t enough. The annual Empty Bowls fundraiser event strives to bring awareness to the pervasiveness of hunger in Cook County while actively working to solve this community problem.
Empty Bowls in Cook County began in 2006 as a project of the Cook County High School Art Club. Today, Empty Bowls is organized by community volunteers and bowls for the event are made by local potters at the Art Colony. Approximately 75 volunteers are needed on the day of the event to assist with setting up, serving, and assorted other tasks. If interested in volunteering, please see the contact information below:
Empty Bowls 2014
The Art Colony also invites the community to participate in this cause by signing up for a Make-a-Bowl session: Sundays at 2pm or Mondays at 7pm. Learn to make one wheel-thrown and one hand-built bowl that will be donated to Empty Bowls. Sessions begin on Sunday, September 20th and run through Monday, October 19th.
Call the Art Colony to register today!
