HUNTINGON, W.Va. For some area residents, the idea of going to bed hungry is something they've never had to worry about. However, it's a part of everyday life for thousands in the Tri-State. The Huntington Area Food Bank (HAFB) is partnering with two Marshall University student groups, as well as the Bnai Sholom Congregation and Christian Associates, in an effort to raise awareness and help change this statistic.
The 7th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser took place Friday, April 23 at First Presbyterian Church, 1015 5th Ave., in Huntington.
Keramos Potters Guild, of the Marshall University Department of Art and Design, and Out Loud Creative, of the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications, are the student groups participating in the project. Members of Keramos are busy creating a variety of bowls to be sold at the event while members of Out Loud assist with all aspects of advertising and public relations. Last years event raised nearly $18,000 for the Huntington Area Food Bank.
Bnai Sholom is an organized Jewish community which began in Huntington 120 years ago. Currently, they are seeking items for the silent auction to be held the day of the event. Lynne Mayer, Bnai Sholom member, said her congregation is a long time supporter of HAFB and is happy to take part in this unique effort.
Christian Associates, an area organization of churches, is seeking donations of soup, bread and other food to be served at the event.
According to hunger facts listed on HAFBs official Web site, approximately 91,000 people in the Tri-State area are struggling to put food on the table, representing a service region of 17 counties. As in previous years, all proceeds from the Empty Bowls event will be presented to HAFB.
