The Empty Bowls project is a worldwide event initiated in Michigan in 1990 to raise funds for local charities with the aim of alleviating hunger, and this is the second year the event has been organised on the Coffs Coast.

President of Coastal Claymakers, Michaela Kloeckner, said that people started lining up half an hour early for first pick of the bowls.

“It was a beautiful affair in the historic Coramba Community hall,” Michaela said.

“People enjoyed their lunch while being entertained by young Saskia Scheib, who took to the stage and played her comprehensive repertoire on the flute and on her harp.”

“The acoustics in the hall were amazing.”

“Seventy bowls found a new home, all the salads were consumed, and people left feeling happy about their purchase and the knowledge they contributed to a good cause,” Michaela said.
