This is a national project which was adopted by Alaska by a local group of potters. The purpose of the project is to raise money for feeding hungry people, to increase awareness of the hunger problem, and to enhance art education. Local potters have made empty ceramic bowls which will be given to guests at the April 14th event in exchange for a donation of money. The guests will be asked to keep the bowls of their choice as a reminder that someone's bowl is always empty and that on this one occasion they have helped to alleviate hunger in Interior Alaska. All proceeds remain in this community. 11 a.m. at the Fairbanks Community Food Bank, 725 26th Ave. Fairbanks.
