ABC40 Honor Roll – Longmeadow H.S. Empty Bowl Dinner
Longmeadow, Mass. (WGGB) — Eighty Longmeadow High School students donated their time and talent to create clay bowls for the town’s Empty Bowl dinner.
This year’s event benefits the Open Pantry’s Holiday Meal. The bowls sold for $15 each and guests ate a simple meal of bread and soup.
The students started making the bowls back in September and their families donated the food.
The Empty Bowl serves as a reminder of all the empty bowls around the world.
Student Teacher Assistant, Dylan Smith says, “The students put a lot of work into all of these bowls. Longmeadow high school is proud of all the artists and that this is going towards a really good cause and we’re really happy for that.”
Deborah Callahan, a Longmeadow High School teacher told us, “To try to make a connection between what they can do and the real world. To make them see their ability can do something beyond something that’s nice to look at.”
Empty Bowls is a grassroots movement designed by artists, craftspeople and educators to help combat hunger.
