Newburgh Free Academy Empty Bowls Event Sells Out!


Students, faculty, staff, and retirees, families, and community members filled the space at Newburgh Free Academy, Main Campus to participate in the annual Empty Bowls event. The event sold out this year, selling 200 tickets. Mr. Joshua Lipira and his ceramics class made each bowl by hand.

 

Each attendee received a hand band bowl and enjoyed soup, salad, cookies, and ice cream. Soup flavors included: Lentil, spinach ravioli, stuffed pepper, chicken, corn chowder, gluten free chicken, all made by Ms. Nancy Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell has been making the soups for this event for the last four years. Dozens of baskets were raffled off and entertainment was provided by a student band.

 

Students volunteered to help serve and facilitate the event as part of Ms. Andrea Fleming’s 12th grade Participation in Government class.

 

Retired art teachers in attendance included: Ms. Monique McCutcheon, Ms. Rochelle Ottens, and Ms. Elaine DeFeo, joined by Ms. Nicole Mischo, and Mr. Joshua Lipira.

The event is estimated to be about 16 years strong, originally started in 2002 by now retired teachers, Mrs. Sandy Corsetti and Mrs. Mary Elin Korchinsky Carnes.

 

“We’re very glad that you could come and help us help others.” Ms. Pilar Treus

 

Organizers of the event were: Mr. Joshua Lipira, Ms. Pilar Treus, Ms. Becky O’Herron, Mrs. Diane Visconti, and Ms. Maria Lastowski.

 

All proceeds go to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley.
