EMPTY BOWLS is an international project to fight hunger. Empty Bowls events take place annually in many cities around the world. The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple.
At our annual Christmas Sale handmade Soup Bowls or donated by guild members. Guests choose and buy a soup bowl for $20, to serve as a reminder that there are always Empty Bowls in the world. The proceeds are donated to the Brantford Food Bank, our guild's charity of choice. The 2007 fall sale included our first “Empty Bowls” event which has become an ongoing tradition. Since 2007 we have donated in excess of $60,000 to the food bank.
