Ceramic bowls and chili were the tools used to fight hunger Wednesday during College of Lake County's annual Empty Bowls fundraiser.

Students studying ceramics and foods preparation teamed up for the event that has raised about $52,000 over the 10-year period, ceramics teacher David Bolton said.

Approximately 1,000 ceramic bowls were on display and for sale. Thirty students in the Ceramics 3 class and faculty members made the bowls.

For a minimum donation of $15 per bowl, plate or cup, attendees were able to select a piece of handmade pottery and receive a bowl of chili made by culinary students.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
