‘Empty Bowls’ on sale March 31 at EUC Auditorium

This year, the Empty Bowls project has selected to support the Spartan Open Pantry, an initiative of UNCG’s Partners Assisting the Homeless & Hungry Spartans (PATHS). No one knows the exact number of Spartans who face homelessness or hunger, but each year the Dean of Students Office helps more than 100 students facing shelter and food insecurity.

How can you help? UNCG faculty, staff, and students can make an impact – through the purchase of one or some of the painted, glazed, and fired bowls that were completed earlier this year, at the annual Bowl Sale. It will be held Monday, March 31, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in the EUC Auditorium Pre-Function area.

Bowls are $5 or you can buy $1 raffle tickets to win bowls that have been selected as some of the best designs done by fellow Spartans.

This project is a collaboration between UNCG’s Housing & Residence Life, the Office of Campus Activities & Programs, the Office of Leadership and Service-Learning, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Students were an integral part in organizing Empty Bowls. To learn more, contact Mark Villacorta at 336-334-5090 or mark_villacorta@uncg.edu.
