“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 many Empty Bowls Events here in Warwick. 100% of the proceeds from these events are donated to local organizations who provide food to people, particularly children, who are in need.
Here are some pictures from our wonderful and successful past events:
