If you’re planning on heading out to lunch on Sunday, make that stop at the 20th annual Austin Empty Bowl Project. Fill your belly with delicious soup and bread, donated by local restaurants and bakeries, in a bowl that has been handcrafted by a local potter. This family-friendly event features live music and is a great way to give back to the community by fighting hunger.
What is the Empty Bowl Project?
Potters from all over Central Texas donate bowls of all sizes, shapes, and colors. Thirty restaurants and bakeries donate delicious soups and breads, while musicians donate their time and talent to entertain us. Then, on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, friends and families come together to purchase a bowl for $20, have it filled with soup, and enjoy the music. The bowl is yours to keep, as a reminder of those whose bowls are empty. The proceeds go to Meals on Wheels Central Texas’ Meals for Kids, and the Central Texas Food Bank to help sponsor the Kids Cafe Program. Kids Cafe provides a safe, nurturing place where children receive a hot, nutritious dinner, as well as help with homework.
