The Empty Bowls program is an initiative designed to raise awareness about
hunger issues within local communities. It begins with local potters donating
handmade bowls and a local chef donating homemade soup to accompany each
bowl. Visitors then make a donation and receive a bowl of soup in return.
By filling their bowls, visitors are helping our community by
filling a bowl for the hungry.
During the Artisans’ Christmas Show, for a donation the visitor received a bowl
and a take-home container with 1 portion of frozen homemade soup. This format
allows donors to purchase multiple bowls for themselves or to give as gifts – all
they need to do is keep the soup frozen. 100% of the donation has been given to
a local charity that focuses on feeding the hungry within our community.
Thank you everyone for your generous support!
