CAC to Host Empty Bowls on March 5th

By Angela Askey, Executive Director of Public Relations and Marketing

Central Arizona College will host the annual Empty Bowls event on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Signal Peak Campus, Sizer and Student Services (M & N) Building courtyard (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.

For a minimum donation of $15 cash, guests may choose a bowl to use and keep, as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. There will also be beverages and desserts included. Proceeds benefit local food banks.
