BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Students at Briarcliff Middle School recently raised money to support the Food Bank for Westchester at the Empty Bowls Dinner.

“We raised more than $1,100 for the Food Bank for Westchester,” said Briarcliff Middle School teacher Jessica Dubin in a press release. The Empty Bowls Dinner is the brainchild of Dubin.

Students made special ceramic bowls for the dinner, which were displayed in the cafeteria, according to a press release. Patrons donated as they entered the dinner then chose a bowl from those on display and ate soup together.

Volunteers served the soup and students washed the bowls for patrons to take home after the meal, according to a press release.

“There were about 60 bowls taken home that evening,” said Dubin in a press release. “The remaining bowls were donated to an agency that distributes them to individuals or families moving into new homes after hardship, homelessness or bouts of domestic violence. I hope the cheerful, handmade bowls will help light up those lives.”
