    Empty Bowls  

    Summer Creek HS gears up for first annual Empty Bowls event

    Summer Creek High School is gearing up for its first annual Empty Bowls event! Students from across Humble ISD have made bowls to sell and raise money for H.A.A.M. by inviting the community to purchase a bowl and enjoy a serving of soup.

    Empty Bowls events have becoming increasingly popular over the last several years as a way to raise awareness about hunger and helping to feed people in need. Communities are asked to purchase handmade bowls and enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread. Proceeds are then donated to an organization dedicated to ending hunger.

    "Our students," said Sandy Newton, "have already done such a fantastic job for their first year. They’ve really taken the lead on this event and I am so proud of them for connecting our community to this service learning opportunity."

    The Empty Bowls event will take place on Saturday, May 10 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Summer Creek High School cafeteria. The handmade student bowls will be available for purchase for $10 each and includes a bowl of soup donated by Chick-fil-a. A limited number of celebrity bowls will be up for auction, signed by individuals such as Congressman Ted Poe, City Council Member Dave Martin, Humble ISD Board of Trustees and radio show hosts Roula and Ryan from KRBE 104.1.
