'Empty Bowls' is planned for April 13 at HHS

Hastings High School ceramics students are planning to present Empty Bowls at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, in the commons area at HHS.

There will be a silent auction and light meal from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., followed by a musical performance and a presentation on hunger in the community and world until 7 p.m.

The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple; guests choose a handmade bowl to use that evening and to take home as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. The suggested minimum donation is $10 in exchange for a meal and the bowl as a keepsake.

The proceeds from Empty Bowls will be split between Hastings Family Service and Heifer International, which will enable the program to donate an ark for needy families. An ark is oxen, rabbits, donkeys, cows, sheep, goats, and healthier, hardy animals that will go forth and multiply, improving lives for countless families and children all over the world.

This year's goal is to raise $2,500.
