The Norwich Tech Art Department will hold its first Empty Bowls charity event on May 4.
Empty Bowls is a movement that has spread like wild fire across the nation, integrating art with the community. This event brings awareness to hunger in our own neighborhoods.
Handmade ceramic bowls brightly glazed by students will be for sale and the bowls are then used to hold delicious homemade soup made by Norwich Tech culinary for the event. Proceeds go St. Vincent De Paul Place.
