2018 Empty Bowls Event
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,
Welcome to the 11th Annual Empty Bowls Project, hosted by the Fostoria Junior/Senior High School Art Club. This is an exciting year because art students and creative cuisine students have collaborated in making bowls, mugs and chili for the event. We have raised over $5200.00 in the last 10 years for the Sharing Kitchen and the local food pantry.
The concept of Empty Bowls began in 1990 when a high school art teacher from Michigan proposed a class project of making ceramic bowls for a fundraiser. Guests were served a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for the meal, guests gave a minimum donation of $10.00 and were invited to keep the bowl as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. The money raised was given to the local food bank. For more information on Empty Bowls Project visit http://www.emptybowls.net .
This year’s Empty Bowls supper will be held in the Fostoria Senior High School cafeteria on Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. We will serve a variety of hearty soups and chili, bread and water generously donated by three different local vendors. All proceeds will benefit the Fostoria Sharing Kitchen and Pantry Plus of Seneca County. We hope you will be able to partake in this event and help us reach our goal of eight-hundred dollars.
Thank you for your support,
Deb Melroy Amy Blakely Holly Reinbolt

The Tech Center is an associate school where our students are able to apply to attend during high school to experience one of the 19 career-technical educational programs. This field trip will be organized so that our 8th graders can visit multiple programs in operation. All 8th graders must have their Emergency Medical Form and Parent Consent Forms turned in to the Attendance Office at FJSHS so they can attend this field trip. Any questions concerning the trip please contact Mrs. Teresa Vogel, School Counselor, or Mr. Drew Bauman, Principal.
