Empty Bowls Is Happening This Evening At The Hastings High School!

Hastings High School Ceramics Students Invite You

You are invited to attend the Empty Bowls event on Thursday, April 21st at 5:30 p.m. in the HHS commons. There will be a silent auction and light meal from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. followed by a short presentation on hunger in our community and the world lasting until 7:00 p.m.

Empty Bowls events happen all over the world and the premise is simple; guests choose a handmade bowl to use that evening and to take home as a reminder that there are always Empty Bowls in the world. The suggested minimum donation is ten dollars in exchange for a meal and the bowl as a keepsake.  The proceeds from Empty Bowls will be split between the Hastings Family Service (our local food shelf), and Heifer International, which will enable us to donate an ark for needy families. An ark is oxen, rabbits, donkeys, cows, sheep, goats, and healthier, hardy animals that will go forth and multiply, improving lives for countless families and children all over the world. Our goal this year is to raise $4,000 or more! It is exciting to see so many young people passionate about working together to end world hunger. We hope you can join us!

For more information or to donate to the silent auction, feel free to contact HHS art teacher Bert Casperson at bertcasperson@hastings.k12.mn.us  Thank you!!
