Some local kids say they’re fighting hunger, one bowl at a time. For this week’s Romona’s Kids, we went to Avon Lake.
Students from high schools in ten west side suburbs made more than 800 ceramic bowls that serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. They held a special lunch at the American Legion Post in Avon Lake last weekend.
For a $20 donation, guests got soup, bread, and one of the bowls.
“I think it's really cool to come here and see all the people that come here to support the people who are hungry,” said Cassandra McMorrow of Avon High School.
“It's always important to help those less fortunate than you are,” said Hannah Bohn of Avon High School.
“It's fun for everyone, everybody here has a smile on their face, they're just loving what they're doing,” said McKinnon Strauss of Avon High School.
Restaurants donated the soup, and there was also a silent auction. All proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio, and local food pantries.
