Every year, the GHS Ceramics program participates in the Empty Bowls fundraiser. Students create bowls based on original designs, which they donate to be sold during the Fine Arts Festival. At the event, the bowls are sold for $10 each, filled with a serving of homemade soup. The proceeds of the sale benefit the Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services food pantry. This year, students raised $770, an amount that will surely benefit many families across Goochland County.
The Empty Bowls project is a global movement to fight hunger through locally organized events.
