In June an Empty Bowls Project Fundraiser took place at Toni’s Kitchen raising $2,793. Partners for Health Foundation matched these funds, and a check for $5,586 was recently presented to Anne Mernin, Director of Outreach, Toni’s Kitchen at St. Luke’s Church.
This Empty Bowls Project was organized by Montclair High School seniors, Sophia Abraham-Raveson, Zoë Jacobs, Jaime Knoth, and Devin Deflora, for their Career Internship Program. The students were in charge of every aspect of creating the event, with Elizabeth Jacobs, owner of The Clay Studio, as their mentor. They created approximately 80 bowls, with some help from community members who were invited to the studio to help them hand build, throw, trim, and finally glaze the bowls. The students prepared most of the food that was served at the fundraising event, with the exception of the generous bread donation from The Montclair Bread Company.
