Did you know that 63,000 Montgomery County residents do not know where their next meal is coming from?
Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The premise is simple: potters, craftspeople, educators, and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. VisArts is donating the clay, kiln time, and glazes and our ceramics instructors and students are donating their time to creating bowls. Attendees are invited to a simple meal of soup, bread, and dessert. In exchange for the ticket cost, guests keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.
All event proceeds will support Nourish Now and Interfaith Works, two area non-profit organizations working to eliminate hunger and meet the needs of the poor in Montgomery County.
