NAPLES, Fla. — Barron Collier High School students help fight hunger in Naples by using their creations to help raise money to feed nearly 40,000 people in Collier County who are food insecure.

Empty Bowls Naples is an annual event which was started by Donna Torrance, a Barron Collier High School art teacher. She says she loved the idea of using her students creations to help feed the hungry in our community, so the event started at the high school, but is now a community event.

Empty Bowls Naples is Saturday, Jan. 26 from 11 a.m, to 2 p.m. at Cambier Park in Naples. You can grab a hand-crafted bowl and try soups from over 50 local restaurants at the event. Tickets are $20 and funds go directly to help feed the hungry in Collier County.
