The original Empty Bowls is a grass roots community event started in the 1990’s in Michigan by two teachers. Since then, that event has spread to communities nation-wide. Six years ago, two intrepid volunteers took up the charge and started Empty Bowls in the Robbinsdale School District to support PRISM and NEAR food shelves, both of which serve families who live within the district. Last year, nearly $15,000 was raised to help alleviate hunger in our community. This year the need in our community is even greater and our goal is to raise $20,000.
