South Jefferson School Fights Hunger with "Empty Bowls"

Listen to this story
Hundreds of clay bowls that were made over the last few months by students and staff in a Jefferson County school will raise thousands of dollars for hunger relief. South Jefferson Middle School, in Adams, is participating in the "Empty Bowls" program. The basic idea for the project is simple. Participants create ceramic bowls, then serve a simple meal of soup and bread. All the money raised benefits local food shelves and homeless shelters. South Jefferson's dinner is Wednesday night (5-6:30 pm) in the High School cafeteria. South Jefferson Middle School counselor Steve Robinson told Todd Moe that all 450 students participated in the project.
