    Empty Bowls is an event thrown by the Leadership Scholars of Ithaca College to help end poverty in Ithaca and Tompkins county.     This short documentary was made for the event and focuses on Ithaca College students' views of poverty in Ithaca and Tompkins County.     The film effectively shows how much the college community is sheltered from the harsh reality they are surrounded by, but also how there are a significant amount of informed and active students trying to help make a difference.

                  Wittenberg University’s Art Department hosted its first Empty Bowls event in 1994. Kate (Duman) Runyon, a ceramics major, took the initiative to get the project started. The event has grown from approximately 100 to 1000 bowls a year since then. All of the bowls are made by Wittenberg University students, staff, faculty, and area potters. The food is donated by local distributors and prepared by Sodexo, the Wittenberg dining service. Art students also design and sell Wittenberg Empty Bowls t-shirts, which add to the earned income for the event. A committee organized by Catholic Social Services solicits sponsorships from area businesses and citizens. The Second Harvest Food bank in Springfield, a program run by Catholic Charities, receives 100% of the funds raised. In 2011, the event raised $36, 200 for Second Harvest. Since 1994, Wittenberg Empty Bowls has earned over $191,470 for the Second Harvest Food bank. Wittenberg’s Empty Bowls challenges students to look for opportunities to help create social capital through their artwork. The event draws a wide cross-section of patrons from the Springfield Community as well people from outside of Springfield.

                    In 1991 Michigan art teacher John Hartom and his wife Lisa thought of an idea to use his students efforts in making ceramic bowls to raise money to feed the hungry. It was originally planned to be a one time event. 21 years later that idea is known as Empty Bowls with events held around the World. Empty Bowls has raised millions of dollars to combat hunger. Now retired, John and Lisa live in Western North Carolina and continue to support the Empty Bowls project. I met John this past summer as he and others were working with the Asheville food bank, MANNA, on their 10th Empty Bowls event. This is a story about people giving their time, material and effort to fight the growing problem of hunger.
