Empty Bowls Community Arts Project

Empty Bowls

The objective of the Empty Bowls Project is to raise awareness of food security issues facing children in Burnaby and to raise funds to help provide assistance to children in need. The Empty Bowls School Arts Project is designed to facilitate discussion and artwork around issues of social responsibility and food security in Burnaby.

Through brainstorming and discussion, students explore issues of the environment, sustainability, food supply and distribution, how to help those in need, and how we all need nourishing food in order to live a healthy life. Students are given opportunities to learn art techniques while learning how different elements and people can come together to make a difference.
