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 & Angels Unware are working together to bring
a fun, informative day to the citizens of Smithville and the
surrounding areas. Join us on Saturday, April 13, 11am - 2pm,
for a fun day of speakers, music and wonderful local food.
Soups and breads are donated by local
Bowl Committee is also very excited to welcome the Smithville
Community Clinic to this year's event as a partner.
