The Empty Bowls Fundraiser was set on Saturday, April 1 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. This fundraiser was held by the NHS Art club in partnership with the NHS Interact club to help raise money for the Newfield Kitchen Cupboard.

The fundraiser was set to bring awareness to hunger. The bowls sold at the fundraiser were made to remind people of all the empty bowls of the world. The bowls for the fundraisers were made by none other than the art classes; with students in grades ranging from 9th-12th along with the assistance of a few patrons from the Newfield Public library. The Newfield art teacher Mrs. Conner said, “The fundraiser was a big success, and a lot of people came to support us.” The bowls were very successful in selling. Destani Ketter, the art club treasurer said, “We started out with three tables full of bowls and when it was over we were left with about only a half of a table full.”

A lot of generous sponsors contributed a variety of delicious soups towards the fundraiser. The sponsors included Stella’s Barn, TST BOCES Culinary Arts, Café Cent-dix, Mercanto, Covered Bridge Market, The Seabring Inn, and Coltivare. Also with Wegmans and Green Star Coop. who donated supplies along with bread. The Brown Family also donated money toward the pottery wheels and glazes to allow more bowls to be made.

Even though the Empty Bowls Fundraiser was only a local event it helped to remind everyone that hunger does exist. There were many people who came to support in raising money for the Newfield Kitchen Cupboard, and all the donations were most appreciated.
