WHAT IS EMPTY BOWLS? A grass-roots effort to raise money for local food shelves. The event in March is open to the public and raises approximately $20,000 through sponsorships and donations. At the event, we feature handmade ceramic bowls for our guests, created by the community and local artists. Entertainment by musical groups and a light soup dinner are enjoyed as we come together to raise awareness and funds for local hunger.
Bowl Making/Glazing Events
Adults and children age 5+ are invited to make, glaze and donate clay bowls at these events (see signup for dates/time/locations). Stop in for a short time or spend the entire time perfecting your bowl.* Groups are welcome. Reservations are encouraged but not required.
* All bowls created will be used at the Empty Bowls event
