The Austin Empty Bowl Project is an effort by Austin area potters to fight hunger.
Always the Sunday before Thanksgiving, this annual family-friendly event invites you to select your favorite from thousands of locally crafted ceramic bowls, have it filled with gourmet soup and bread and listen to live music while enjoying your lunch.
Your $20 donation goes to Kids Cafe, a program of the Capital Area Food Bank, and Meals for Kids, a program of Meals on Wheels & More. Take the bowl home with you to remind you that others have empty bowls.
This year’s event will take place on Sunday, November 18, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Marchesa Hall & Theatre in Lincoln Village (across from Highland Mall).
