The Empty Bowl Project is a national grassroots
effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: Potters
and other craftspeople, educators and others work with the
community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited
to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash
donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of
all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated
to organizations working to end hunger and food insecurity.
Food Pantry, Smithville Community Gardens, Lost Pines Artisan's
Alliance, Smithville Community Clinic & Angels Unware
are working together to bring a fun, informative day to the
citizens of Smithville and the surrounding areas. Join us
on Saturday, June 27, 11am - 2pm. Due to health concerns,
this year's event will be DRIVE THRU at the Smithville Community
Gardens, 107 SW 2nd Street in Smithville. You will receive
the soup of your choice, bread, cookies and a bowl.
Soups and breads
are donated by local restaurants.
