Empty Bowls

Fight hunger one bowl at a timeOn Thursday, March 30, we joined together with Student Life to help increase hunger awareness on campus. Eight types of soup were donated by Lions Club and other Staff members, 101 bowls generously donated by ceramics students, and the event raised $600 to donate to the Northern Illinois Food Bank! The event was featured in the Beacon News, which brought additional community members to campus to learn more about this topic.

Guest speaker Cayla Mauer shared her heartfelt story of what life was like as a homeless student through college, and how she persevered to overcome many obstacles. Her inspiring story gave students, employees, and community members a look into the hardships that college students face, and raised awareness to the additional challenges students who are homeless face every day.

Keep an eye on the local news as additional coverage of the event will be published in local papers. 
Community Wide Day to Make a Difference
