The John Cooper School’s 16th Annual Empty Bowls event was held on Saturday, February 26 where members of the community joined together to raise money for families in need.

“We invite the community to join us for a bowl of soup and water. This is symbolic to represent how some families in our community struggle with food insecurity and they may not always have a meal or options when it comes to everyday living,” said Jillian Scotto, The John Cooper School Art Teacher.

Students hosted interactive activities for children, to raise awareness and promote service in our community. Proceeds from the event go to Interfaith Food Pantry to help feed the hungry. Over the last 16 years the school has raised more than $100,000 to help fight food insecurity.
