Empty Bowls is an international effort to fight hunger, implemented in Houston to benefitthe Houston Food Bank. The unique lunch fundraiser will be held Saturday, May 19,2018, and is a collaboration between Houston area ceramists, woodturners and artistsworking in all media and Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. In its first 13 years,Empty Bowls Houston has raised $801,550 for the Houston Food Bank! (This equalsmore than 2.4 million meals to the hungry!) Attendees enjoy perusing the 1,500-plus one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists, which are available for a donation of $25, which goes 100% to Houston Food Bank. For each bowl purchased, attendees receive a simple lunch of soup provided by Sweet Tomatoes and bread from Slow Dough Bread Co. The empty bowls purchased serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and the world. There are also larger bowls available at a higher price (lunch also included.) Note: for each $1 donated to Houston Food Bank, THREE meals are provided to the hungry. So, each $25 bowl purchase provides 75 meals! Live music and artist demonstrations throughout the day.
