Food and Art will Combine at College of Lake County Fundraiser
Get a handmade ceramic bowl for a $15 donation to the Northern Illinois Food Bank at CLC's "Empty Bowls" fundraiser on Tuesday and have it filled with chili prepared by culinary students.
Food and art will be combined to fight hunger in the fifth annual Empty Bowls fundraiser to be held at the College of Lake County Learning Resource Center Atrium, 19351 W. Washington St., in Grayslake, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12.
Proceeds will benefit the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
For a minimum donation of $15 per bowl, event attendees can purchase a handmade ceramic bowl and receive a serving of chili and cornbread.
Members of the CLC Community Clay Association, consisting of both faculty and students, have created more than 1,000 bowls for the event, and the CLC Hospitality and Culinary Management program is preparing the chili and corn bread.
The 2012 Empty Bowls event raised $7,000 for the Northern Illinois Food Bank, and the club’s goal is to raise awareness about the issues of hunger, according to Ben Bates, club adviser and ceramics instructor.
