GSB Middle School STREAMS Students Raise Awareness in Fighting Hunger

According to Feeding America's Map the Meal study, over 860,000 people in New Jersey struggle with hunger, and 30% of them are children. Through a heartfelt service-learning project, GSB Middle School STREAMS students designed, created, and donated a beautiful array of bowls for the Second Annual Empty Bowls Event, on March 22, 2020, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Somerset. 
 
Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort to raise money and awareness in the fight to end hunger. A simple meal is donated, prepared, and served by local entrepreneurs. The handmade pottery bowls are personalized by artists, and guests choose them as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.  The event is open to the public, and all proceeds go directly to the Franklin Food Bank.
