MEREDITH — Inter-Lakes High School will be hosting its Fifth Annual Empty Bowls Dinner on Thursday, November 13 in the Inter-Lakes JR/SR High School Cafeteria from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Empty Bowls is an international project which began in Michigan in the spring of 1991 to help fight hunger. After hearing of this organization, many of students at Inter-Lakes High School joined forces to make a difference and are now extending the offer to members of the community. Art teacher, Janet Sanguedolce's students and the National Honor Society have worked together to create beautiful ceramic bowls in which they will be serving a simple meal of rice or soup at an upcoming dinner. Guests choose a bowl to use that day and to keep as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal and bowl, guests give a suggested minimum donation of $10.
This money is donated to a hunger-fighting organization to directly impact those most affected by hunger. Over $600 was raised at Inter-Lakes last year which was donated to the Center Harbor Food Pantry, Meredith Food Pantry, Heifer International and the Inter-Lakes HS Family Food Fund. Donations for food came from Hart's, Mame's, Giuseppe's, George's Diner, Lago's, Canoe and Lavinia's Restaurant. Empty Bowls projects now occur throughout the country with thousands of participants raising millions of dollars to fight hunger.
