Empty Bowls Luncheons

Feeding hope, one bowl at a time
What difference does a bowl make?

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to raise money for, and awareness about, hunger relief. Since its inception in a high school ceramics class in 1990, Empty Bowls projects have engaged hundreds of thousands of individuals and raised millions of dollars for local communities.

The bowl is a stark reminder that many in our community face an empty bowl on a daily basis.

A special thanks to our Empty Bowls hosts, donors, and potters who donate their time, treasure, and talents to this cause.
