Empty Bowls is an international effort to fight hunger, implemented in Houston to benefit the Houston Food Bank.  The unique lunch fundraiser will be held Saturday, May 14, 2016, and is a collaboration between Houston area ceramists, woodturners and artists working in all media and Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. In its first 11 years, Empty Bowls Houston has raised $589,831 for the Houston Food Bank!  (This equals 1,769,493 meals to the hungry!) 

For a minimum $25 donation, attendees receive a simple lunch of soup and bread provided by Whole Foods Market, and then select a bowl from 1,500-plus one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists.  The empty bowls serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and the world.  There are also larger bowls available at a higher price (lunch also included.)

Live music and artist demonstrations throughout the day.

SPONSORS:  Whole Foods Market, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Ceramic Store, Archway Gallery, Slow Dough Bread Co., GoodPop, The Mad Potter, LD Systems, Waste Management, Charity Gigs and Edible Houston Magazine
