Kenbrook Elementary Holds Empty Bowls Event

The project, launched in Michigan 20 years ago, raises funds to fight hunger.

Students at  will help combat hunger in the community by participating in the 20th Anniversary of Empty Bowls Supper from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Feb. 16. 

Principal Arnie Rubin said 400 students have made bowls for the event. Those who attend will chose a bowl, then have a soup and bread dinner just as someone who is homeless or living in a shelter might do. Proceeds will benefit Neighborhood House, which provides food and other support for families in need in Farmington and Farmington Hills. 

Empty Bowls is an international, grassroots effort to fight hunger. The project began at a Michigan high school in the spring of 1991. Empty Bowls projects now occur throughout the year, raising millions of dollars to fight hunger.

Admission is a donation of $10 for adults and $3 for children.

You may reserve your tickets in advance or pay at the door. Learn more by writing to linda.ulrich@farmington.k12.mi.us or visiting emptybowls.org.
