The community is invited to the first annual Princeton Day School Empty Bowls event taking place in the Campus Center on Wednesday, April 4 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door for $25. Guests to the event will be invited to choose a handcrafted bowl created by our students, enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread, and then keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world. All of the proceeds for this event will be donated to local organizations addressing hunger in our community.
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 teacher Eric Rempe has been working with his ceramics students from the 4th and 8th grades, as well as students in the Upper School, to create and donate 350 bowls for this event. Local restaurants have agreed to donate approximately 35 gallons of soup.
In America, one in six children may not know where they will get their next meal. Join us for this community event that can make a difference in the fight against hunger.
