Melrose School fundraiser to fight hunger

The Melrose School will host an Empty Bowl Fundraiser to support the Rhode Island Community Food Bank on Friday, Jan. 21, from 3:30 to 7 p.m. The event will serve soup, macaroni and cheese, bread, homemade desserts and drinks.

Students in Ms. Pamula’s Lawn Avenue School art class and afterschool pottery program made over 200 bowls for the event, which are available for participants to select and take home with them after dinner. This is the sixth year that Jamestown has held the event, which raises about $5,000 annually.

Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for children. For more information, call Lisa Primiano at 487-4552 or e-mail lisaprimiano@cox.net.
