With a minimum $25 donation, donors will receive a handcrafted clay bowl and a meal including soup, a salad and bread.
Also featuring music, the event was coordinated by seniors Zoe Jacobs, Devin DeFloram, Jaime Knoth and Sophia Abraham-Raveson along with their mentor Elizabeth Jacobs.
“The bowls have come out very nicely considering the fact that three of us have never really made clay bowls before,” said Abraham-Raveson.
With previous experience coordinating charity events, Abraham-Raveson decided to join the project so that she could continue in this line of volunteer work.
“I also liked the creative aspect of learning to make the clay bowls,” said Abraham-Raveson.
The Empty Bowls Project is an international grassroots movement organized by clay artists to help fight worldwide hunger. As a clay artist herself, the students’ mentor, Jacobs has previously hosted an Empty Bowls event and decided to do so again with the help of the students.
All proceeds from the event will be matched by Partner’s for Health and then donated to benefit Toni’s Kitchen.
The event will be held tomorrow evening from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Toni’s Kitchen, located at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 73 South Fullerton Avenue in Montclair.
