The 15th Annual Empty Bowls

EmptyBowls_PostcardFront

Mark Your Calendars: The 15th annual Empty Bowls returns this year on Monday, September 26, 2016.

Tickets for this event will go on sale on August 1, 2016.

This unique and memorable event celebrates community, art, and collaboration while bringing awareness to the very real problem of hunger.  Attendees choose a bowl handmade by local artisans and enjoy a meal of soup, bread, and dessert. The souvenir bowl they take home reminds them of all the empty bowls in the world.

Everything for the event is donated: the soup, the restaurant space, the dessert, and over 1,000 plus bowls.  This allows for all the profits to go directly toward feeding our neighbors facing hunger in Western North Carolina.

In addition to the bowls that each ticket holder can select and take home, there is a collector’s corner at Empty Bowls, where special bowls selected by the artists are available for purchase. One hundred percent of the purchase price of these works of art goes to provide food throughout MANNA’s 16-county service area.
