This past Friday, Carleton staged its annual Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Northfield Area Food Shelf. The event featured homemade soup served in handmade bowls created by Carleton ceramics students, with participants donating a suggested $10 for the bowl (to keep) and filled with soup made by residents of various interest houses on campus. The Empty Bowls Project is a nation-wide movement that was started in 1990 by a rural Michigan art teacher and his students. The simple concept spread across the country and the world, and art teachers and students hold Empty Bowls Project fundraisers of various sizes annually from the elementary to the college level.
