For as long as I can remember, Loaves + Fishes have run an annual Empty Bowls fundraiser focused on helping those facing food scarcity no matter the reason.
It's a cause that's close to my heart.
In 2016, I started working with Loaves and Fishes. The Empty Bowls fundraiser has a low entry fee and all guests are served using a bowl that has been donated by a store, business, or artist. Those that attend get to go home with the bowl, which is amazing because you know you wouldn't be able to buy handcrafted bowls at such a low cost let alone be donating to charity and getting a meal at the same time!
A year into supporting this cause, my students started getting interested too.
This year, the majority of the bowls are made by students. They used their own clay and time to make dozens of bowls each! It's crazy how productive they have been.
