Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls is a national effort to fight hunger. Our local event is sponsored by the Cincinnati Clay Alliance. Join us Sunday, November 6, 2016. Clay Alliance Potters and other craftspeople, educators community members create and donate hundreds of handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple and delicious meal of soup and bread and get to pick out a hand made bowl to take home and enjoy. The money raised is donated to the Freestore Foodbank, a local organization striving to end childhood hunger in our community. Here's how it works: You purchase tickets, show up at your scheduled seating, choose your favorite bowl (from 100s of bowls!), choose one of the wonderful soup options, then, top it off with some good bread, a drink and dessert. Have a fun time, a great meal – all while helping others in our community.
