Students will be spending the week exploring Seattle's food culture and learning about the Empty Bowls project (https://emptybowls.com/). They will spend half of the week (2 days) learning about the culinary landscape in Seattle through eating and visiting potential cultural centers, museums, and restaurants. For the other half of the week (2 days), they will learn about the Empty Bowls project and create their own ceramic bowls in the Overlake Ceramic Studio for a future Empty Bowls event. The final day, students will be making soup on campus with the aim of distributing to local community organizations.

Special Considerations

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  If a participant, experiences any overlapping CDC symptoms of COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with student pick-up. CDC's possible symptoms of COVID can be found here.

By selecting the above project(s,) you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
