Empty Bowls is an international effort to fight hunger, implemented in Houston to benefit the Houston Food Bank. The unique lunch fundraiser is a collaboration between Houston area ceramists, woodturners and artists working in all media and Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

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 the community and the world. There are also larger bowls available at a higher price (lunch also included.) Live music and artist demonstrations will be available throughout the day.

The Preview Party for Empty Bowls on June 2 will allow attendees to be among the first to pick out the best bowls from $25 and up, and enjoy light bites from Whole Foods, as well as beer, wine, and craft camaraderie. The evening’s proceeds will be shared between Houston Food Bank and Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.  One hundred percent of bowl purchases benefits the Houston Food Bank. Casual attire, space is limited.
