Ceramics Students Create Bowls for Empty Bowls Dinner

Shady Side Academy Senior School students in Scott Aiken's Ceramics class made bowls on the pottery wheel to donate to the 2019 Empty Bowls Dinner, a fundraising event co-hosted by Just Harvest and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank that is designed to raise awareness about hunger in our community.

Ceramics students and bowls

This year's Empty Bowls dinner will be held on Sunday, March 10 at Rodef Shalom. Attendees who purchase a ticket will receive a simple meal of soup and bread, donated by some of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh, and a beautiful handmade ceramic bowl to take home. The event also features celebrity soup servers, an auction of local ceramic artwork and celebrity-autographed bowls, live music and kids' activities. Proceeds benefit Just Harvest and the Food Bank.

Congratulations to the students for creating such beautiful bowls for this worthy cause!
