Empty Bowls Campaign Returning to Artisan’s Gallery & Café

For the second year in a row, Artisan’s Gallery & Café will be participating in the Empty Bowls Campaign:

---
In 1990 a high school art teacher in Michigan helped his students search for a way to raise funds to support a food drive. What evolved was a class project to make ceramic bowls for a fund raising meal. Guests were served a simple meal of soup and bread, and were invited to keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world.

By the following year the originators had developed this concept into Empty Bowls, a project to provide support for food banks, soup kitchens, and other organizations that fight hunger. Since then, Empty Bowls events have been held throughout the world, and millions of dollars have been raised to combat hunger. For more information about the Empty Bowls Campaign visit their website at www.emptybowls.net.

For a $20 donation, you can help fight hunger in our area, and enjoy artisan’s bread and homemade soup served in a ceramic bowl created by a local artist.
