Students at Jefferson High School served up awareness about global hunger last Thursday.

As part of the "Empty Bowls" fundraiser, pottery students hand-crafted 120 bowls to serve as a reminder of all the people who have empty bowls worldwide.


Those attending could buy a student-made bowl for $10 and receive chili, cornbread, water and a cookie or they could pay $5 just for the meal.
