ETHS ‘Empty Bowl’ event is next week

Evanston Township High School will host its annual Empty Bowl event on Wednesday, Dec. 10, as part of the fight against hunger.

Students and staff are invited to purchase a simple meal and a handmade ceramic bowl donated by students, teachers, and local artists.

Now in its 15th year, the ETHS Community Service Department, in conjunction with the school’s Career & Technical Education and Fine Arts Departments, host the event during the high school’s lunch periods.

In addition to a handcrafted bowl, each $10 meal includes soup, bread, a dessert, and drink. The lunch-only option is $5 per person.

A silent auction of ceramics by local artists and students will also be held during the event. All proceeds from Empty Bowl go to local soup kitchens and food pantries.
