Empty Bowls Benefit Concert for Doorways Food Pantry


On April 26th, the first annual Empty Bowls Benefit Concert was held at Seekonk High School. The musical concert featured the Seekonk High School Jazz Band as well as the school's favorite rock band, Fat Moose. Available for purchase at the concert were hundreds of student handmade ceramic bowls, with all proceeds going to Seekonk’s food pantry, Doorways. The handmade bowls are a stark reminder that many in our community face an empty bowl on a daily basis.

The event was broadly supported by the Seekonk High School community, with half-a-dozen school clubs participating in coordination with the music department and the art department. Jackie Glum, who initiated the Empty Bowls project, expressed her delight at how the whole school came together to create the event. The event was a huge success, very well attended and raised over $1,400 to combat food uncertainty in our town. On behalf of Doorways, we thank Mrs. Glum, the students and staff of Seekonk High School, and the attendees for their support of our neighbors in need.
