Empty Bowls Houston is a grassroots effort by artists, skilled crafters, students and teachers dedicated to alleviating hunger in the greater Houston area. Since its inception 13 years ago, Empty Bowls Houston has raised more than $500,000 for the Houston Food Bank, enabling them to provide over 1.5 million meals. Empty Bowls Houston is presented by Whole Foods Market and implemented locally by Houston-area ceramists and artists, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and the 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. Pottery and woodturning demonstrations and live music will be featured.
The empty bowls serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world.
