What is Empty Bowls?
The Empty Bowls Project is an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger.
The premise is simple.
communitIES works together TO CREATE handMADE 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 concept for “Empty Bowls” started in the early 90’s with Bloomfield Hills, Michigan high school students and their art teacher, John Hartom. In an effort to help out with the local food drive they threw, decorated and fired 120 bowls. The school’s staff was invited to the cafeteria to select a bowl and enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread. John and his wife talked to the staff about hunger in their community, thanked them for their cash donations and then asked them to take their bowls home with them as a reminder of those with empty bowls. There are now “Empty Bowls” projects all over the world.
The project is now championed by Imagine Render a nonprofit whose mission is to develop creative, exciting, and powerful models that are replicable and scalable by others wishing to work for social justice.
At THE FIRST Empty Bowls Westchester our community raised over $100,000 to help fight food insecurity in Northern Westchester!
THE FIGHT CONTINUES.
YOU CAN STILL HELP!
