After a year off, the Mitchell Area Empty Bowl fundraiser returned on Tuesday inside the Mitchell Wesleyan Church's fellowship hall.

The fundraiser included bowls, plates, cups and hot pads mostly made by nearly 100 students from the classes of Mitchell High School art teachers Marica Shannon and Alyson Palmer.

Shannon said she believed it was the 11th year of the fundraiser after having to cancel last year's event due to COVID-19.

The soup and meal was provided by students in the culinary program from the Mitchell Career and Technical Education Academy.

Students in the Mitchell High School art ambassador program worked the event and raffles.

Proceeds from the event go to the Mitchell Area Food Pantry.
