Have dinner with us on Thursday, November 14th 2019 from 6-7:30 pm in South River High School's cafeteria. It will feature a sampling of soup from local restaurants (scroll down to see the list) and bread. Free beverages will be provided and dessert (from area bakeries) will be available for an additional cost. Please do not expect to get filled up at this event, as we simulate how the poor often do not get a full meal.
We will be having Harvest Fair and silent auctions throughout the event. You don't have to be present at the silent auction to win, but you must have cash, check or credit card.
Artisan ceramic bowls will also be available for purchase as a reminder that your participation helped ease someone's hunger. All the proceeds benefit the Anne Arundel County Food Bank.
Over the past few years, SRHS Interact Club donated over $3,000 to Anne Arundel Food Bank and an additional $1,000 to various local charities in need.

HARVEST FAIR &
Art teacher John Hartom initiated the project in 1990-91 when he joined a drive to give funds to the Michigan community. His idea was to organize a charitable event to give artists and art students a way to make a personal difference. Today Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity. For more information go to www.emptybowls.net.
