ANNUAL SRU ‘EMPTY BOWLS’ PROJECT TO RAISE HUNGER AWARENESS, FOOD FUNDS

     SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s Institute for Community, Service-Learning and Nonprofit Leadership will host its ninth annual “Empty Bowls” program as a way of raising hunger awareness across the community on Oct. 24.

      The event will have two seatings, offering lunch from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and dinner from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the University Union. As a remembrance, participants take home their “empty bowl” as reminder. The unique bowls are made by SRU art students and volunteers in the SRU Ceramics Studio.

            Tickets, $10 per person, with students permitted to use the cafeteria “Rock Dollars,” will be sold in the Lowry Center, Weisenfluh and Boozel dining hall, Slippery Rock True Value, and at the door.

      Funds raised by the event will be used to support area food delivery programs including the Slippery Rock Feed My Sheep Food Shelter, the Butler Area Agency on Aging and the I Care House food programs in New Castle.
