Empty Bowls Fundraiser 2022

HHS and HCC Team Up for Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser


HUTCHINSON, KANSAS – Hutchinson High School and Hutchinson Community College are collaborating for their annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on Thursday, October 13, 2022, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Hutchinson Art Center located at 405 N Washington Street.


Hutchinson High School and Hutchinson Community College are “raising hunger awareness through art,” at the Empty Bowls fundraiser supporting the Reno County Food Bank. The event has been a collaboration between the two art departments, along with support from numerous community sponsors.


Hutchinson High School students Mystichequie Earlywine-Gutierrez, Jason Manke, and Tia Hines have been working together with teachers Julia Johnson and Kenna Teel to advertise the event. Earlywine-Gutierrez and Manke are graphics students, while Hines is using the event as her senior International Baccalaureate project.


“It feels nice to be involved with the event. The creation of the logo took a while, and I wanted to work on it to show that we are helping people in our community,” said Earlywine-Gutierrez about helping to advertise the event.   


There is a $10 suggested donation to enter the event, which will provide guests with a hand-made ceramic bowl created by HHS and HCC students, as well as food provided by Traveling Bowl. All proceeds will go directly to the Reno County Food Bank.
