The Shelton Arts Commission was pleased to donate $1,854.00 to The Saint’s Pantry Food Bank from donations made by participants at the 12th Annual Empty Bowls Project. Local restaurants including The Strip Steak House, Xinh’s Clam and Oyster House, Sisters Restaurant, Kern’s Kitchen, Smoking Mo’s, and Olympic Bakery and Deli generously donated soup and bread for the event.

The Empty Bowls project is a creative effort to fight hunger. Participants created ceramic bowls, building one night and glazing a week later. When the bowls were finished, participants gathered to choose a bowl to keep for exchange of a $10.00 donation. Participants then were treated to a delicious bowl of soup and bread served by one of the six participating restaurants. ALL proceeds went to the Saint’s Pantry Food Bank.
