March 11, 2017 will welcome the Empty Bowls event at Pagosa Springs Elementary School. Empty Bowls is an annual service project coordinated by art teacher, Tessie Garcia. Prior to the event elementary and high school students hand craft beautiful ceramic bowls which are donated. Next a team of volunteers create yummy homemade soup that is served along with bread and salad to create a humble meal. For a donation of $10.00, attendees will receive the bowl and lunch. The proceeds are then donated to local charities that work to eliminate food insecurity in Archuleta County.
