Since 1990, ceramic students from the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art take part in the Empty Bowl Project, a service project in support of the Statesboro Food Bank. Led by ceramics professor Jane Pleak, the Empty Bowl Project allows students to create unique bowls and then serve lunch to the public for a $10 cash donation. On Thursday, the annual Chili Bowl Sale will be held in the Rotunda on the Georgia Southern University campus from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. Last year, in just 2 hours, the Empty Bowl Project raised $1,700 that was given to the Statesboro Food Bank.
