Every year, the power of artistic talent helps fill the bellies of hungry residents in Menomonee Falls.
The Menomonee Falls High School Art Honor Society will host its annual Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Menomonee Falls Area Food Pantry from 5-7:30 pm, Feb. 1 at the MFHS Cafeteria.
The event will be held prior to the MFHS boys basketball game. The dinner includes soup, bread, water, and ceramic bowl is available for a $10 donation. The event will have three different soups donated by Bakers Square, bread donated by Pepperidge Farm, and paper products donated by Culver's. Art students from throughout the district created the ceramic bowls that will be available as a keepsake of the event.
Empty Bowls is an international project to fight hunger. The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple; serve a simple meal of soup and bread. Guests choose a bowl to keep as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world.
It’s the most festive soup line imaginable, and all proceeds go to the Falls Area Food Pantry. Tickets will be available the night of the event at the café entrance. Questions can be directed to, Terra Chmielewski at 262-946-2046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
