Empty Bowls Dinner Volunteers

Empty Bowls Dinner Sign Up

We are excited to announce HB du Pont Middle School’s first ever Empty Bowls fundraising event to be held on Friday October 19, 2018 from 6-8pm.

The Empty Bowls Event is designed to raise awareness of hunger and food insecurity in our community while raising funds to support the West End Neighborhood House. We will serve a simple meal of donated soup and bread from local restaurants and cafes, with a small dessert and water. You can also purchase a handcrafted ceramic bowl to take home, made by a HB student or staff member.

Here's what we need help with to make this a fun and successful event: Volunteers during the day to pick up the soup and bread from the predetermined restaurants, volunteers to set up the cafeteria before the event, volunteers to serve the soup and bread during the event and of course volunteers to help clean up!  Not interested in being near food?  Then you can volunteer to hand out the beautiful hand crafted bowls or help at the ticket/check in table as patrons enter the event.  Not exactly sure where you want to volunteer or the slot you wanted is full...no worries....signup as a floater and we will put you to work somewhere, somehow!

The doors open at 6:00pm and we want to be READY at 6:00pm.  Thank you!

Date: 10/19/2018 (Fri.)

Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm EDT

Location: 735 Meeting House Road, Hockessin, DE
