Hawai‘i Potters' Guild started Empty Bowl Hawai‘i in 2009 as a biennial event in conjunction with our 42 anniversary exhibition at The ARTS at Marks Garage. With your support this event has grown from our first 700 bowl effort to 5,000 bowls in 2015. Empty Bowl Hawaii 2017 has chosen Aloha Harvest as the beneficiary recipient. Aloha Harvest is a non-profit organiation that rescues quality, donated food and delivers it free of charge to social service agencies feeding the hungry in Hawai`i. Over 17.5 million pounds of food have been rescued since November 1999.
Mahalo to our volunteers, business supporters and all of you who come, enjoy and purchase bowls as reminders there are always empty bowls in the world and we can all make a difference.
