Empty Bowls Filled for Hunger Awareness
During National Hunger Awareness Month (October), the Sayville High School Art Club and the Sayville School Employees Charitable Foundation hosted an “Empty Bowls” soup/salad dinner event for guests in the High School Cafeteria.
Feasting on hearty soups, delicious breads, and healthy salad were approximately 150 people, comprising Sayville students, families, faculty, staff and community members, who conmingled in a congenial atmosphere that included background music provided by Sayville musicians.
The event was a smorgasboard of all-you-can-eat homemade soups that included such favorites as New England clam chowder, corn chowder, pasta fagiole, garlic potato, Italian wedding, chicken noodle, beef barley, lental, and a huge soup pot of noodles and vegetables donated by Brooklyn Paul's Deli. Additionally, breads and beverages were contriubuted by Fritsche's, Audrey's, Village Panini, Stop& Shop, and Parkville Deli. Also for the admission/donation of $10, guests chose from a vast array of exquisite and unique hand-crafted ceramic bowls made by the students to keep and enjoy forever while supporting this worthy cause. By evening's end, the Empty Bowls Fundraiser had satified the taste buds of everyone who attended and collected over $1,500 in donations.
