AU’s Empty Bowls Banquet to benefit Food Bank of East Alabama

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

Auburn University will hold its 2012 Empty Bowls Banquet Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. in the Alabama Farmers Pavilion, at 620-A S. Donahue Drive at Ag Heritage Park.

The Empty Bowls banquet is meant to increase hunger awareness among students, faculty, staff and the local community.

It will feature a simple meal of bread and soup served in ceramic bowls, handmade by Department of Art faculty and students. Each person attending will take home a bowl as a reminder of all those around the world whose bowls are empty.

The banquet, co-sponsored by the Committee of 19 and Art in Ag, also will include live music by a local folk band, a short film on hunger and comments from Martha Henk, Food Bank of East Alabama director.

Tickets are now available and are $10 for students and $20 for all others, with all proceeds, as well as any additional donations, going to the East Alabama Food Bank via the Beat Bama Food Drive. Tickets can be purchased in 210 Spidle Hall, 315 Tichenor Hall, or 3 Comer Hall.

For more about the Empty Bowls Banquet, visit their Facebook page or contact Azeem Ahmed at aza0026@auburn.edu.
