KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Coming up this Friday is a fundraiser for Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes, an organization that provides food assistance to those in need. The Empty Bowls Community Meal will be held at Prairie Ridge Elementary School from five-30 to seven-30.
For a suggested donation of five dollars, each guest will get a student-made ceramic bowl, symbolic of food scarcity in the community, says teacher Doug Duncan. His third-through-fifth grade students made the bowls.
In the last four years, Prairie Ridge School has raised almost seven thousand dollars for Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes with its Empty Bowls fundraiser. Formore information, go to http://www.kzoolf.org/
