Empty Bowls Project fundraiser slated for March 6

OAKLAND — Empty Bowls has been a fundraiser at Messalonskee High School for the past several years. The purpose of the project is to raise money for local food pantries. It’s also about raising awareness about community members who are struggling to provide food for their families.
Students and faculty members of Messalonskee High School, under the direction of ceramics teacher Sherrie Damon, have been crafting ceramic bowls to be sold as part of the dinner. The menu for the evening consists of homemade soups, salad, bread and desserts. The pottery bowls will be on display for diners to choose and take home with them as a reminder of the event and what it represents.
This year’s Empty Bowls Dinner will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, March 6, in the high school cafeteria. The cost is $10 for adults and $8 for senior citizens and students. This year, gthere will be a silent auction as well.
Diners can complete the evening by attending “The Tempest,” performed by the Messalonskee High School Players. Tickets for the play may be purchased at the door.
