Years ago a high school teacher came up
with a creative way for his students to raise funds to support a food drive. What evolved was a class project to make clay bowls for a fundraising meal. Guests were served a simple meal of soup and bread and were invited to keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world. By the following year,
the originator had developed this concept
into "Empty Bowls".
Empty Bowls has been adopted by many
food banks. Most include the simple meal
of bread and soup with guests taking
home a hand-crafted bowl
as a keepsake.
