By Lexi Grimaldi

The Empty Bowl Project is an international grassroots organization with the purpose of fighting hunger in the local community through education and events. Annually, students from Granby Memorial High School host this project to help eliminate food insecurity. This year, National Honor Society Students, led by Amanda Jacob, Anna Fedenyuk, Lexi Grimaldi and Samantha Gilbert are organizing this event to combat hunger in the local community. The Fourth Annual Empty Bowls event will be held at the Granby Memorial Middle School on Friday, Feb. 28, from 5 to 7 p.m. Walk-ins and reservations are both welcome. To make a reservation or for more information please contact them at

All guests receive a beautiful handmade bowl full of soup from local restaurants with the bowl to take home as a reminder of those who are hungry. Live music will be played. There will also be a silent auction to benefit the National Honor Society and Visual Arts scholarships. All proceeds for the Empty Bowls event will be donated to the Granby Food Bank.
