Students have been hard at work for more than a month creating beautiful ceramic bowls that will be for sale at tonight's Empty Bowls Event and Soup Supper. The proceeds from the event will go to The Sheridan Story, a local organization that provides food for metro area kids facing food insecurity.

Working Together to Make a Difference

“Students are excited about sharing their artwork for this event," said Sheryl Cullen, Lower School Art Teacher. "They are even more excited that their artwork can be used to help The Sheridan Story in its mission to help hungry kids around the metro area. Our service learning experience is helping all of us to see that by working together we can make a difference!”

The theme for this event is "Do Something!" taken from the song of the same title by Matthew West, and it fits right into our bigger art theme for the year - "You are a Part of Something So Much Bigger Than Yourself!"Minnehaha-Academy-Empty-Bowls.jpg

Purchase a Bowl

Kindergartners through fifth graders at Minnehaha Academy have been learning about hunger and how it impacts the lives of kids in our community. As a response to what they are learning, they have created bowls - the sale of which will go directly to help kids in need. 

The Empty Bowls Project is a grassroots movement to help end hunger, and events like ours are held all around the country to fight hunger in the community.

Event details: Bowls will be for sale on Tuesday, March 8, 2016, from 4:30-7:00 p.m. at Minnehaha Academy's South Campus, 4200 West River Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55406. (Minimum donation of $10 per bowl.)
