Print More

The Granby Memorial High School National Honor Society is holding its annual Empty Bowls fundraising dinner on Friday, April 3, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Commons of GMHS. The Empty Bowls Project is an international, nonprofit, grassroots organization with the purpose of fighting hunger in the community.

Every year, students from Granby’s National Honor Society organize and run this event to help fight local hunger. All proceeds from the event are donated to food banks in the Granby and Hartland communities. Local restaurants, including Lost Acres Orchard, The Cambridge House Brew Pub, and more, will donate soup to be served at the event in handmade bowls made by artisans in the community.

If you plan to attend the event, there is an $8 price for just soup, $15 for soup and a bowl, and a discount of $10 per soup and bowl for a family of 3+.

There will also be a silent auction held at the event, and proceeds from this action will go to the Visual Arts Scholarship and the National Honor Society Scholarship for GMHS students. We encourage you to come out to enjoy a fun night with family, friends, live music and delicious soup, all while supporting a great cause!
