Wayzata High School’s 24th annual Empty Bowls event, which raises money for Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners (IOCP), will be held Thursday, May 19 from 5:00-7:00pm. Empty Bowls is an international grassroots fundraising effort to unite arts education and the prevention of hunger.
Advanced pottery students, WHS alumni, and teachers design and craft beautiful ceramic bowls. These bowls are used to bring the community together for a simple soup meal to help fight local hunger. Wayzata pottery students, alumni, and staff work with donated clay to craft over 500 bowls throughout the school year.
When Wayzata High School held its first Empty Bowls event in 1992, it was the first in Minnesota. Since that first event, the annual event has raised over $100,000 for IOCP and increased awareness of hunger in the community. Stop by the Wayzata High School cafeteria for delicious soups and tasty bread generously donated by local businesses.
The suggested donation is $10/person and includes dinner and a hand-crafted bowl. 100% of proceeds will benefit the IOCP Food Shelf. There will also be a silent auction and students selling additional handmade wares. Tickets can be purchased at IOCP or the night of the event at the door. Suggested donation is $10/person.
