FREEHOLD – Freehold Regional High School students raised $1,100 for Fulfill of Monmouth & Ocean counties during the school’s annual Empty Bowls event.

According to the district, “Empty Bowls is an international project that helps fight hunger around the world.”

Students came together to use their talents to raise funds for the organization. Art students sold handmade ceramic bowls and culinary students prepared and sold various soups – including cream of mushroom, mulligatawny, black bean, Jersey tomato, split pea, minestrone, corn chowder, and chicken noodle – in the Five Star Café.

In addition to the café, a student-run food drive brought in 300 pounds of canned goods for Fulfill.
