Empty Bowls is an international project started several decades ago by potters and ceramic artists who create handmade bowls, solicit food and other support, and host a community meal. Attending guests, who pay to share in the meal, choose a bowl to keep as a reminder of their support of helping to fill the many empty bowls in their neighborhood and the world.
Empty Bowls events now support food related charities around the world and have raised millions of dollars to fight against hunger. They strengthen communities, support local artists by celebrating beautiful pottery and educate people about hunger and poverty.
All proceeds from Empty Bowls Attleboro Area are dedicated to alleviating food insecurity and hunger through the Attleboro Interfaith Collaborative’s Food n’ Friends Program, Attleboro YMCA, Murray Unitarian Universalist Food Pantry, and Hebron Food Pantry.
Empty Bowls Attleboro was founded by Sarah Mott, Sally Cobb, Martha Machnik, and Darlene Blazejewski.
