“Empty Bowls” is an international project that fights hunger, supporting food related charities around the world. The promotion and growth of the project is managed by The Imagine/RENDER Group, a 501(c)3 organization, however, each community or school’s events are self developed and independent.
Each year, Sculpture and Pottery 2, AP 3D and NAHS students participate in “Empty Bowls", creating and donating food safe bowls thrown in class on the pottery wheels. Buyers choose a bowl and are asked to keep it as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the bowls are donated to local hunger-fighting organizations, such as the Foxboro Food Pantry and The Greater Boston Food Bank.
