Arroyo Grande -- Some Central Coast high school students are making dozens of ceramic bowls that will be used to raise money for homeless services. Nipomo High School students are just some of the artists who are contributing handmade bowls for this week's event. Local chefs are donating gallons of soup and lots of bread.
The students in the ceramics class are finishing up dozens of handmade bowls they've been working on for weeks. They will donate about 3-dozen bowls in all. The students spend more than an hour on each one. The whole process takes more than a week to complete from forming the bowls to the glazing and firing.
Senior Gabriel King says, "It feels good that I am taking my work and donating it whereas some people might sell it, you are just giving your work for a good cause."
Everyone who attends gets to try out specialty soups from area restaurants like Penny's All American Cafe in Pismo Beach. Owner Penny Rodriguez plans to donate at least 5-gallons of tortilla soup. And, attendees get to take home one of the handmade bowls. The Empty Bowls event is Thursday at 11:30 at Saint Patrick's Church Hall on Fair Oaks in Arroyo Grande. The money raised goes to the Five Cities Homeless Coalition to help build a South County Community Services Center to provide resources for the homeless and a permanent home for the Peoples' Kitchen. Tickets are still available they cost 25 dollars each.
