— West Milford High School is presenting its second annual Empty Bowls, an international project to fight hunger. The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple: Participants create ceramic bowls, and then serve a simple meal of soup and bread. Guests choose a bowl to take home as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world.

West Milford High School students are creating the bowls for the event, which will be held on Tuesday, March 12, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Macopin Middle School.

The main objectives of Empty Bowls are to raise money to feed the world’s hungry people, increase awareness of hunger and advocate for art education.

Through education, awareness, and action, concerned individuals can bring about an attitude that will end hunger. Thanks to a grant from the West Milford Education Foundation, the students have the opportunity to create the school's second Empty Bowls event. Last year’s event raised $2,200. This year's goal is to raise more money than last year.

Tickets for Empty Bowls are $15 and include a meal of homemade soup, bread and a hand-crafted bowl to take home as a reminder of hunger in the world and the community. For tickets or donation information, call 973-697-1701 Ext. 7232.
