CAC to Host Empty Bowls Event on February 23
By Angela Askey, Executive Director Public Relations and Marketing
Central Arizona College will host the 14th Annual Empty Bowls event on Tues., February 23, at 11 a.m. at the Signal Peak Campus, Sizer (N) Building patio (8470 N. Overfield Road, Coolidge, AZ 85128.)
Empty Bowls is a worldwide grass roots initiative that began in 1990 to help fight hunger. CAC ceramists create food safe, stoneware bowls and the CAC Culinary Arts students serve a simple meal of soup and bread.
This year the culinary students will prepare three soup options, rolls and a variety of dessert bunt cakes with mousse fillings.
For a minimum donation of $10 cash, guests may choose a bowl to use and keep, as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. All funds raised by the CAC Art Club are donated to three food banks; St. Vincent de Paul, Warehouse Food Pantry, and Casa Grande Food Bank.
New for 2016, raffles featuring dinner with a chef and large decorated ceramic pots will be offered.
CAC's Empty Bowls event is sponsored by the CAC Art Department, Culinary Arts Department, PBL SkillsUSA, Marjon, Inc., and Laguna Clay.
