Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger, where local potters donate handcrafted bowls and guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
Please join us for a meal at our 2nd Edition of Bread Basket’s Empty Bowls fundraiser and help fight hunger in our community.
