Students at Gravenhurst High School are continuing their work raising donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank this November.
On the 17th, students will be serving up soup and buns for the 9th annual Empty Bowls event.
Every year students and local artists Jim Brown, Gina Denne and Diane Wooldridge build ceramic bowls and the students glaze them.
Teacher and Event Organizer Sue Buckingham says she expects about 200 bowls to be made in all.
She says the hospitality students come together to make the soups, bread and cookies for the event.
All proceeds raised will go between the Food Bank and the Gravenhurst Supper Club.
Scotiabank has partnered with the school this year to match all donations from tickets purchased at its location in Gravenhurst.
Tickets at Scotiabank are $25, which means the school will get $50 for every ticket sold there.
The event kicks off at 6:00pm at Gravenhurst High School and there will be entertainment provided by the Muskoka Ukulele Society as well as student and local musicians.
Tickets at the door will be sold for $30 and will not be involved a part of the Scotiabank campaign.
