International Law Students Help Feed Hungry Families
March 23, 2010
Vermont Law School's International Law Society raised nearly $1,000 on March 15 at its second annual Empty Bowl Benefit in the Chase Community Center. Schools and businesses across Vermont donated handmade bowls and ILS members prepared delicious homemade soups for the event. A donation of $5 for a small bowl or $10 for a large bowl included an all-you-can-eat soup meal. The money raised this year nearly matched the $1,000 that the ILS students raised in last year's inaugural Empty Bowl Benefit. All proceeds went to Heifer International, a nonprofit organization that works with small communities around the world to help stop hunger, and to the Vermont Foodbank, which secures large quantities of food and offers them to member agencies, including community food shelves.
