There was an atmosphere of altruism at Riverhead High School on Feb. 1 to raise $1,547 for the Phillips Avenue Elementary School Food Pantry through the second annual Empty Soup Bowls fundraiser.
In preparation for the event, ceramics students spent hours handcrafting more than 140 bowls on pottery wheels, while the Cooking Club prepared soups, including broccoli cheddar, Italian minestrone and loaded baked potato.
Also pitching in was the high school jazz band, which performed during the fundraiser, and the school’s Photo Club, which displayed and sold student artwork.
