Empty Bowls – Nov. 10, 2022
The 2022 Empty Bowls event took place on Thursday, Nov 10, 2022 as a part of Homelessness Awareness Week (HAW). The Office of Economic Development and Community Engagement facilitate this event in partnership with the College of the Arts and University Dining. Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort by artists in cities and towns across the country and world and has raised millions of dollars to help end hunger. This was the fifth year of Empty Bowls @KSU during HAW week. With each ticket purchase, the participant received a hand-crafted bowl produced by KSU students from the College of the Arts and a meal prepared by Chef Brad from Dining Services.
All proceeds go to directly support CARE services and support our KSU students who are suffering from homelessness, food insecurity and/or have experience in the foster care system. This event started at KSU in 2017 and has grown in attendance and money collected each year. This year, we raised $6,390 for CARE Services. To date, this event has raised $27,315 to support KSU students.
