Empty Bowls

The Ichabod Crane High School Art Club will be holding its eighth annual Empty Bowls Supper on Tuesday, February 2, 2016, 4:30-6:00 in the ICHS cafeteria. The public is invited to enjoy a delicious simple meal at this community event and take home a ceramic bowl made by Ichabod Crane students. The bowl serves as a visible reminder that people go to bed hungry every night.

Admission by cash donation includes handmade bowl, soup, bread, and beverage. The ceramic bowls are created by members of the Art Club and students in Ceramics classes at ICHS. All proceeds from this "Empty Bowls" supper benefit the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry.

The OK5k Race annually donates funds from the race to the Art Club to purchase materials for making the bowls. In turn, the Art Club makes custom bowls that are given as awards at the OK5k Race, in addition to the bowls made for the Empty Bowls Supper.

Support our Sponsors!

Along with our major sponsor -- Kinderhook Bank -- dozens of local businesses, organizations, and individuals make the OK5k possible. Please visit our sponsor's page and support them when you're in the area.

(And be assured that no animals were harmed in the making of this video, although they were understandably embarrassed to be seen with us.)
