CANCELLED due to unforseen circumstances; check back for rescheduled date!


WHAT: Come together with your JGS community at the first-ever JGS Empty Bowls Chili Cook-Off, featuring chili made by those in our community and one-of-a-kind bowls JGS students have been making and decorating just for this event!

WHY: Empty Bowls is an international, grassroots movement to help end hunger in local communities. Our event will raise funds for Valley of the Sun United Way (VSUW), whose mission is to break the cycle of poverty for every child, individual, and family in Maricopa County. Each event ticket holder can choose and take home a student-made bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.

WHEN: Friday, Feb 7 from 5-7p

TICKETS: On sale now (at the front desk)! $10 (cash only, please) includes unlimited chili tasting (while it lasts!), bread & butter, and one keepsake bowl per paid guest. (Ages 5 & under are no charge.)
