You may have heard of “Empty Bowls.” According to their website,
Empty Bowls is a grassroots movement by artists and crafts people in cities and towns around the world to raise money for food-related charities to care for and feed the hungry in their communities.
Empty Bowls supports food-related charitable organizations around the world, and has raised millions of dollars to help end hunger. (https://emptybowls.com/)
In Rome GA, Empty Bowls of Rome has been held every fall for about 20 years. It is sponsored and supported by local restaurants, schools, businesses as well as a robust arts community. The evening is an informal gathering that’s fun for all participants and all the proceeds go to one of a select group of local charities. A canned food drive accompanies the event.
I’m honored, for the second year in a row, to be asked to participate in the Empty Bowls of Rome GA event! I have donated a total of 20 bowls. I LOVE this event!
