Empty Bowls is a national and international grassroots movement that aims to help end hunger.  The Folk School has been hosting the event for many years, with Resident Potter, Mike Lalone in charge of the event.

Help alleviate hunger in our community by joining us for our annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on March 12 from 5-7 p.m. We’ll gather in the Olive Dame Campbell Dining Hall for a fun evening of good food prepared by the Folk School’s dining hall staff, and lively music by the Dog Branch Cats. The popular Brown Bag Raffle returns this year with many opportunities to win one-of-a-kind pottery items.

Admission is $30 and includes a handmade bowl of your choice and a hearty meal of soup, bread, salad and dessert. Tickets go on sale February 16 at the Folk School’s Craft Shop, Cherokee County Chamber, and United Community Bank in Hayesville. All proceeds will go to the Hinton Center Food Bank in Clay County and the Sharing Center Food Bank in Cherokee County.

Special thanks to all the local potters who have been extra busy throwing bowls in our Clay Studio for this important event!
