The Empty Plate Project is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: students create handcrafted bowls. They are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity. All K-5 students will create a pottery bowl during their art classes with art teachers, Allie Rimkunas and Patricia Kaczmarek. We will ask parents to support our act of kindness by making a donation in any amount to purchase their child’s bowl made during art class. The bowls will be distributed at the Family Empty Bowl Project and Movie Night! Great Falls will be donating all proceeds to the Gorham Food Pantry.
