Empty Bowls Project to fill Arvada Food Bank

There won't be food at the Empty Bowls Project open house rescheduled (because of snow) for Monday, November 2, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. But you won't come away empty-handed.

That's because students from Betty Adams Elementary, Lukas Elementary, Meiklejohn Elementary, Ryan Elementary, Semper Elementary, Sheridan Green Elementary, Witt Elementary, Lincoln Academy Charter School, Mandalay Middle, Wayne Carle Middle and Standley Lake High have created clay bowls that will be sold at the open house, for a suggested donation of $10 per bowl.

All proceeds will go to the Arvada Community Food Bank; last year, the Empty Bowls Project poured more than $2,000 into that charity.

The open house is set for Standley Lake High School, 9300 West 104th Avenue in Westminster; for more on the food bank, click here.
