Empty Bowls

I went to a fundraiser: Empty Bowls. For a modest price you could get homemade soup in a ceramic bowl and then take the bowl home. Local potters donated bowls. It was so popular this year that they ran out of soup and bowls before the event was scheduled to close.

Money raised will go to local food banks. A simple concept that was very effective. See this item on the CBC site.


  1. We have a similar event in Naples - all funds going to food bank, too. Our bowls are made in HS art classes and they ALWAYS run out - it has become a very popular fundraiser! :)

  2. What a wonderful fundraiser - especially nice for both food bank and those who participate in the homemade soup in a ceramic bowl. This is a really nice shot of your bowl.

  3. I see a tiny tweety bird walking a maze in that bowl. It is a clever way to raise money.
