Empty Bowls is a community event to end hunger alongside neighbors and friends. Local restaurants donate delicious fresh gourmet soup and artisan bread. Guests savor the meal in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local ceramicists, then take the bowls home to treasure as a gift and reminder of hunger in our community.
