Every year at Empty Bowls, the students of Second Harvest’s culinary training program, Triad Community Kitchen, assist with all things soup!
From preparing their own soups in class, to serving soups and keeping everything well stocked throughout this huge event, TCK students gain great experience by volunteering at Empty Bowls. They gain experience in not only in catering a large event, but also in giving back to their community. We consider that a win-win for their education.
We love to see their enthusiasm as they prepare for the busy day ahead. This year, the TCK students are going above and beyond as they are also preparing for Tuesday evening’s Empty Bowls Dinner — which is new to the Empty Bowl’s line up this year.
These students volunteer their time after a full day of classes to then come downtown and help make Empty Bowls a success! It’s clear through their unwavering commitment that serving their community is an important part of their time in TCK.
