The college's art club and different artists from the area made ceramic bowls to support Duluth's Empty Bowl Project.

Empty Bowl is an event each spring that raises money for Second Harvest Northern Lakes Northern Lakes Food Bank.

Dozens of students volunteer to try and make over 200 bowls.   

"It's more of a unique feel than a store bought bowl that you bought or you may get off the shelf," Adam Hansen, a Lake Superior College student making a bowl, said.  "You can put your own design into it and put your soul into it more or less."

The "Throw-a-Thon" is held from 9 a.m to 9 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Lake Superior College estimates the Throw-a-Thon has produced more than $155,000 worth of bowls for the Empty Bowl Project over the last 17 years.
