All bowls were created by the Middle School’s Art Department, and 100 percent of funds raised will be donated to the food bank.

“We’re delighted that Groves Middle School has selected the food bank to be a recipient of their Empty Bowls fundraiser,” said Southeast Texas Food Bank President and CEO Barbara Newhouse.
