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, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and Lawndale Art Center. In its first eight years, Empty Bowls Houston has raised $342,250 for the Houston Food Bank!

The empty bowls serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and the world.  There are also larger bowls available at a higher price (lunch also included.)

Live music and artist demonstrations throughout the day.
