High Plains Food and AISD Hosting Empty Bowls Dinner

The Amarillo Independent School District is gearing up to host the annual Empty Bowls event on April 20th.

For a $10 donation, guests will enjoy homemade beef stew and choose a student hand-crafted bowl as a keepsake with proceeds going to the High Plains Food Bank’s Kids Cafe.

“One in five local children faces hunger, and this impacts students’ learning and development every day in the classroom,” said Zack Wilson, executive director of High Plains Food Bank. “We are very grateful that AISD has partnered with us again to support Kids Cafe through Empty Bowls.”

The event will take place at the Polk Street United Methodist Church Great Hall from 5:30 to 7pm.

Art students will contribute handcrafted commemorative bowls, culinary arts students will provide fresh-baked bread for the event, and student choirs will provide entertainment the evening of the event.
