Empty Bowls event set to battle local hunger
Hundreds of ceramic bowls are being built, glazed and fired at New Richmond schools in preparation of March's Empty Bowls event at Hillside Elementary.
Students started building the bowls last week, said Bridget Haugen, high school art teacher. The high school plans to make about 150 bowls.
Empty Bowls is a national campaign, started by a school teacher in Michigan who wanted to help his students raise funds to support a food drive.
