The annual Empty Bowls Supper at Medomak Valley High School, 320 Manktown Road, will take place Wednesday, March 27, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the school’s cafeteria. A concert by the MVHS Jazz Band will follow at 6:15 p.m. in the auditorium.

The Medomak Valley community, comprising ceramics students and their families, staff and a few steadfast yearly business contributors (special thanks to Waldoboro Hannaford and Borealis Breads), will sell beautiful ceramic bowls filled with homemade foods to support the hungry in the towns of Waldoboro, Washington, Warren, Union and Friendship. The supper is open to any and all who wish to help fight food insecurity in the Midcoast area.

Students from six clay classes have made beautiful soup-sized bowls, which will be sold for $10 (cash or check) on the night of the supper. Students who made the bowls are encouraged to provide extra community service by setting up tables, serving food, selling raffle tickets and helping clean up (parents may go enjoy the concert while the Empty Bowls crew cleans up).

Members of the community, staff, students and their families will line up outside the front office to purchase their tickets and get first pick of the bowls, which will be laid out on several tables in the cafeteria. If more than one bowl appeals, simply go back out to the cash table and pay for an extra; there often are matching pairs.

The buffet line will offers donated homemade foods — soups, stews, casseroles, salads, bread, desserts and drinks. Attendees also may bid on the beautiful ceramic silent auction pieces created by teachers Brooke Holland and Krisanne Baker. After supper, rinse, wash and dry your bowl and take it home to remember those in need in our communities.

All funds from the Empty Bowl Supper are distributed to the six food banks that serve the school district.
