The Junior-Senior High School art department had a great turn out for its fourth annual Empty Bowls event.  

Community members were welcomed into the school’s cafeteria as they enjoyed the student art show, live music and a buffet of food that was donated by many local restaurants. Art students also created ceramic bowls that were given to attendees as keepsakes.

This year, the event raised $1,400 through raffles and donations. The proceeds will benefit Long Island Cares, the Harry Chapin Food Bank, in an effort to help put an end to hunger on Long Island.
