Princeton Day School announces the first annual Empty Bowls event, a community fundraiser to address hunger in our local community. This event will take place on campus on Wednesday, April 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and tickets will be sold at the door for $25.
Guests to the event will be invited to choose a handcrafted bowl, enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread, and then keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world. Once soup has been served, there will be an opportunity to purchase individual bowls for $10. Pitch Perfect, an Upper School a cappella group, will be singing, as well.
All of the proceeds for this event will be donated to Trenton Area Soup Kitchen and Feeding America. In America, one in six children may not know where they will get their next meal. By participating, the community can help make a difference in the fight against hunger.
Started in 1990, Empty Bowls is an international initiative to fight hunger that is personalized by organizations on a community level. At Princeton Day School, ceramics students from the 4th and 8th grades, as well as ceramics students in the Upper School, are making and donating 350 bowls for this event, and local restaurants are donating approximately 35 gallons of soup.
