Onekama School hosted an EMPTY BOWLS SOUP dinner on Friday, February 19th in the Onekama School Cafeteria. An early estimate is that over $1300 was raised. All proceeds will be donated to the St Joseph Church Community Food Pantry. The Empty Bowls project received support and sponsorship from the Imagine/RENDER Group, a Wendy's Restaurant grant for the Arts, contributions from local restaurants, bakeries, businesses, Onekama School National Honor Society, Community citizens and the Onekama School Art students. The Art Students busily created each and every bowl individually. The NHS students organized the dinner: food recruitment, publicity and people power to serve the dinner. A large crowd joined us in an effort to make an ending to hunger a priority within our community and the world.
