UU Partners with Local Food Banks for Empty Bowls 2018
Ohio Ag Connection - 02/19/2018

Urbana University, a branch campus of Franklin University has partnered with the Second Harvest Food Bank to host Empty Bowls 2018, an event to raise awareness about the growing problem of hunger in Champaign County. The seventh annual Empty Bowls of Champaign County will be held March 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Urbana University Student Center.

The event is a fundraiser for Second Harvest Food Bank of Champaign, Clark and Logan Counties offering patrons a beautifully hand-crafted ceramic bowl and a simple meal of soup and bread for $15 per bowl. All proceeds benefit the Food Bank, which supports 10 Champaign County member agencies--all local food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. Second Harvest Food Bank collects, stores, and distributes over 600,000 pounds of food annually to these member agencies for distribution to hungry families and individuals throughout the county.

Urbana University students, coaches, faculty and staff support this event to fight hunger by volunteering at the event, greeting community members, washing bowls, serving soup and sitting on the event planning committee.

The community is invited and encouraged to join the University for a modest meal with a powerful message.

For more information, contact Shana Loveless, Director of Community Relations, at 614-947-6142 or shana.loveless@urbana.edu.
