Hunger is a big problem in the U.S. and all over the world; 2,000 children live under the poverty line in Hoboken alone. Many people feel lucky to earn eight to ten dollars at their job, but that's not enough at all, and the problem is still getting worse. People every day are dying from hunger. Children who don't get enough food and nutrients can get their growth affected. In other countries the child death rate from hunger can be over two hundred.
You can help out by donating money or by participating in the Empty Bowls Supper. People should participate in the Empty Bowls Supper because it will help the homeless of Hoboken have food and shelter. The Hoboken Clergy shelter uses your money to buy food to feed lots of hungry people each night.
It's easy to participate in the Empty Bowls Supper; all you have to do is come and enjoy the soup and bread we have made.
At the Empty Bowls Supper you get a full bowl of soup and a bowl of your choice to take home to remember that in the world there's' always someone that's hungry.
The Empty Bowls Supper will be held Saturday, April 12 with meals at 12 noon and 2 p.m. at the Hoboken Clergy Shelter on the corner of 3rd and Bloomfield. Each ticket costs $6 and you can buy them at the door. For more info call 201-963-3280.
