The "Empty Bowls Project" is an international grassroots effort to raise both money and
awareness in the fight to end hunger. The mission is to create positive and lasting
change through the arts, education, and projects that build community.
HOW IT WORKS:
Potters, crafters, educators, students and volunteers work with the community to create
handcrafted bowls. Local restaurants donate soup and bread to serve. Guests are invited on the 4th
Saturday of January to a simple meal of soup and bread served at Cambier Park from 11am-2pm.
In exchange for a $15 cash donation, guests are asked
to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the 'empty bowls' in the world.
This event benefits
