Empty Bowls is an international project to fight hunger. The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple. Participants create ceramic bowls, then serve a simple meal of soup and bread. Guests choose a bowl to use that day and to keep as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. In exchange for the meal and the bowl, guests give a suggested minimum donation of ten dollars. The meal’s sponsors and/or guests choose a hunger-fighting organization to receive the money collected.
We are going to do a modified empty bowls project and sell bowls for a suggested donation of ten dollars and give the money we raise to a Richmond food bank or soup kitchen.
