Empty Bowls 2015 was held on the snow date, March 21. It was a great success! Thank you to everyone who helped or participated! The bowls you see here were made and donated by me and purchased at the event. 100% of the purchase price was donated to local programs to feed the hungry in the Warwick Community.
“Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group. The basic premise is simple: Potters and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a 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.”
I’ve helped organize and made hundreds of bowls for 6 Empty Bowls Events here in Warwick. Here are some pictures from our wonderful and successful past events:
