The NFS Empty Bowl Dinner to be held on Friday, February 22, 2019 from 5:00-7:00pm in the Auditorium. The dinner is an opportunity for the school to come together as a community, enjoy a potluck dinner of soup, bread, salad and desserts, and fight hunger in our area. Attendees will choose their favorite bowl, fill it with soup, enjoy with fellow NFS families, and take home at the end of the dinner. Net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.
NFS will be collecting food for 20-25 Thanksgiving meals for needy families through the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. The proceeds from fifth grade weekly pretzel sales will be used to purchase turkeys, potatoes, and carrots for each family. Newtown Friends School students are asked to provide the remaining items. Students are asked to bring specific items based on their grade.
