The Empty Bowls fundraiser, as part of National Hunger Awareness Month (October), has enjoyed a ten-year tradition in Sayville Schools.
Sponsored by the art department under the direction of John Verschure, Debbie Urso, Jen Berotti, Evan Hammer, and in conjunction with the Sayville School Employees Charitable Foundation, Empty Bowls was a feast of tossed greens,all-you-can-eat homemade soups, and scrumptious deserts generously supplied by Sayville faculty, students, families, and such local merchants as Crickets, Koi Sayville, and Off the Block (see full list below).
For the price of a $10 ticket/donation, patrons were able to pick hand-crafted bowls—there was an artistic array of ceramics designed by the students and faculty—that were dish-washer and microwave safe while enjoying good food and great company. For ten years the Empty Bowls soup/salad dinner fundraising event has been feeding more than just dinner guests. Thanks to the generosity of those who attended this year, Empty Bowls collected over $1000 for the Greater Sayville Food Pantry and other local charities.
