WHAT IS EMPTY BOWLS?
In 1990 a high school art teacher in Michigan helped his students solve a problem. They were searching for a way to raise money to support a food drive. What evolved was a class project to make ceramic bowls for a fund-raising meal. Guests were served a simple meal of soup and bread and were invited to keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world.
By the following year, the originators had developed this concept into Empty Bowls, a project to provide support for food banks, soup kitchens, and other organizations that fight hunger.
As a participant of our event, you will also select a handcrafted ceramic bowl designed by professional potters, school and university art classes, sample delicious soup and bread from local chefs while listening to live music – all of which will be donated. As in Michigan, you will take the bowls home as a reminder
That someone’s bowl is always empty.
