Empty Bowls is an international movement to involve the pottery community in helping the hungry. The proceeds from the Cincinnati Clay Alliance Empty Bowls events benefit Kids Cafe of the Freestore Foodbank. There are over 15 Kids Cafe locations in greater Cincinnati where children receive a nourishing meal, help with homework and personal hygiene, and can participate in fun activities.
This is the 20th annual Empty Bowls event put on by the Cincinnati Clay Alliance! The Clay Alliance serves up handmade bowls made by our members and Arnold’s Bar and Grill serves up some delicious soup. This year, desserts and breads will be donated by Clay Alliance members too. Music will be provided by Pandini Brothers (Italian Street Music).
Arnold’s is Cincinnati’s oldest continuing operational bar (minus the alcohol part during probation), since 1861. Thank you for helping the Cincinnati Clay Alliance raise over $338,000 for hungry children! Please help us continue our mission. Meal tickets include a handmade bowl. More donated handmade items will be available for purchase the day of the event. Additional donations can be made below with or without a meal ticket purchase.
