HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - An annual fundraiser involving Marshall University ceramics students has raised more than $14,000 to help feed needy families.

Marshall University associate ceramics professor Frederick Bartolovic tells The Herald-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2puVLPh ) that about 1,400 bowls were crafted throughout the past year. They were sold for $15 on Saturday at the 14th annual empty Bowls event in Huntington to benefit the Facing Hunger Foodbank.

Bartolovic says each purchase covered the cost of more than 100 meals.

The Facing Hunger Foodbank serves more than 115,000 people in 17 counties in West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southern Ohio.
