As the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, Youth Action Hudson is gearing up for our annual Empty Bowls event! Each year, our students take the lead in planning and organizing the event which raises awareness about food insecurity in St. Croix County. At the event, which is open to the public, our students serve a simple meal of soup and bread to guests in handmade and donated bowls.
In addition to raising awareness about hunger, the event also raises money to be donated to a local organization that helps support families in the Hudson community. Last year our students chose to donate our proceeds to The Hudson Backpack Program to provide vouchers for families with children to receive milk and bread from local grocery stores.
Check out these great pictures from the 2013 Empty Bowls event, including our students presenting the proceeds to the The Hudson Backpack program, and keep your eyes open for information about the upcoming 2014 Empty Bowls event!
