Empty Bowls created by Covenant Day kids

Covenant Day participates every other year in Empty Bowls, an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. Students in art classes from TK -12th grades created pinch pot ceramic bowls, which were fired, glazed and offered for pre-purchase to students’ families.

This year’s effort – which also included a Panera Bread soup lunch – raised at least $5,600 overall for the BounceBack Backpack Program of the Matthews Help Center, including $1,700 for a VIP silent auction the week of March 11. The program provides food for kids on weekends.

Here, Covenant Day School fourth-graders Philip Abner and Katherine Ashley make bowls for the school's Empty Bowls project.
