Visit us at Houston-area Whole Foods Markets on Thursday, May 7, when 5% of sales will benefit Empty Bowls. There will be pottery demonstrations and bowls will be available for purchase.


Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort by artists and craftspeople in cities and towns across the country to feed the hungry in their communities. Empty Bowls Houston is presented by Whole Food Market and implemented locally by Houston-area ceramists and artists working in various media, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and Houston Food Bank.

For a minimum $25 donation, attendees have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists, then receive a simple lunch of soup donated by Whole Foods Market and freshly prepared by Houston Food Bank Community Kitchen.

The empty bowls serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world. Pottery and woodturning demonstrations and live music will be featured.

Thank you to our 2015 sponsors
