Event description

Description

Empty Bowl Hawa`i is a unique event where artists and chefs get together to help support food security and end hunger. Each ticket purchase includes soup, bread and a bowl. Select from thousands of beautiful bowls created by local potters and community members. Each bowl is meant as a keepsake to remind us of the reality that each day someone goes hungry and a bowl is left empty. You'll also be able to choose from a variety of gourmet soups made by local chefs.

The 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. Since then, the event has grown to a over 5,000 bowl effort. This year's beneficiary is Aloha Harvest, a non-profit organization that rescues quality, donated food and delivers it free of charge to social service agencies feeding the hungry in Hawai`i. Over 18 million pounds of food have been rescued since November 1999.
