Empty Bowls for the Treasure Coast Food Bank

 

The Treasure Coast Food Bank along with Fort Pierce Central High School, Lincoln Park Academy, Fairlawn Elementary, and Centennial High School participated in this year’s annual Empty Bowls event. Students and Art teachers from across this district participated in creating soup bowls to address the growing issue of food insecurity in our community. This year’s Empty Bowls looked very different. Instead of the usual event at the Ft. Pierce Farmers Market, this year’s sales were online, we raised a total of $12,819.00, this included the online sales and the online silent auction. Many people made a direct donation, which provided a sizeable increase to help our goal of fighting hunger one bowl at a time. –Heather Blackmon-Gordon (SLCPS Empty Bowls Coordinator)
