“Empty Bowls” Aids World Hunger

Posted on: 6:07 am, November 18, 2013, by , updated on: 09:40am, November 18, 2013

WILKES-BARRE — People ate a bowl of soup on Sunday in an effort to help others suffering from hunger.

Wilkes University hosted the “Empty Bowls” fundraiser at the Henry Student Center in Wilkes-Barre.  The event raises money for local food banks.

For $15.00 people could buy a handmade bowl then fill it with soup.  The bowls were crafted by Wilkes University students and other local potters.

Wilkes University pottery instructor Jean Adams came up with the idea to do the fundraiser.

“There’s a need and the need isn’t going to go away anytime soon.  It was important for me to try and pay it back to my community, and i guess the best way for me to do it is by using my talents,” said Adams.

Adams and her students created nearly one thousand bowls for the fundraiser in Wilkes Barre.
