On Thursday, December 15, 2016, Ginn Academy will hold its forth annual Empty Bowls fundraiser to directly support the Cleveland Foodbank. For a $10 donation, you will receive a handmade bowl, created by a member of the Ginn Academy ceramics program. Along with your bowl you will also receive a cup of homemade soup, a spoon and linen, a slice of freshly made bread and a cookie. Please come to the Ginn Academy from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM to support this important cause for those in need in Northeast Ohio.
Helping to Feed People in Need: Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity. For more information go to: http://www.emptybowls.net/
This fundraiser has been organized by Judy Rickel, ceramics teacher at the Ginn Academy.
