Forest Lake Area Learning Center students Abigail Bergdahl, Margaux Reynolds, Samantha Friel and Kallie Keller serve soup during last Thursday’s Empty Bowls fundraiser at the school. The second-annual event features a community dinner and a sale of art created by students from the ALC, Central Montessori Elementary, S.T.E.P. program and STRIVE middle school program. Proceeds benefit the Community Helping Hand food shelf. A grant from the school district’s community education program helped make the Empty Bowls program possible this year.
