Event participants received a handcrafted bowl and a soup meal for an $8 donation.

The Cupboard, an on-campus food pantry assisting students and their families who have food insecurities, was also open for the campus community to tour. The event also featured the sale of several ceramic art pieces made by Penn College students and faculty.

More information is available by emailing The Cupboard or by visiting the Dining Services portal page, where students and employees can learn about other ways to donate.
