Watertown Schools Fight Hunger with "Empty Bowls"

Listen to this story
Some 1,700 clay bowls that were made over the last few months at schools in Jefferson County will raise thousands of dollars for hunger relief. The schools are participating in the "Empty Bowls" program, which began sixteen years ago in Michigan and has grown nationwide in scope. Benefit dinners will be held Wednesday and Thursday and again on May 24th. All the money raised by the local schools will benefit food shelves and homeless shelters. As Todd Moe reports, the "Empty Bowls" program allows students, teachers and parents to tap into creativity and engage in community service.
