Vandora Springs art students help Garner food pantry

Vandora Springs Elementary art students will host a benefit for the food pantry at Garner Area Ministries on Saturday, December 8, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will complete their Empty Bowl Project and will take place at the school at 1300 Vandora Springs Road in Garner.

As part of the Empty Bowl Project, fourth-grade Art Club students created bowls in art class as they learned about the problem of hunger and ways they could help. They want people to bring 20 items of non-perishable food to the school on December 8 and in return, students will provide them one of the students’ handcrafted bowls. All food collected goes to the Garner Area Ministries.
