Robin Reynolds, DSU ceramics instructor, organizes Empty Bowls each year. Last year, the event raised more than $4,000 for local food pantries.

Special thanks for Sponsor bowls: Julie Schuster, Sarah Snavely, Caitlin Freidt, and Tod Winter.
Cost is $15 per bowl, limit two bowls per person. Soup and bread is provided.
Every year, approximately 2.3 to 3.5 million people in America experience hunger and homelessness. Empty Bowls Project is a national fundraising event to bring awareness to hunger in America.
