Empty Bowls Detroit hosts an event each year that we so cleverly call “Empty Bowls Detroit”.  The purpose of the event is to raise money and awareness for the food program at Cass Community Social Services (CCSS), a Detroit-based agency dedicated to providing food, housing, health services, and job programs to those in need in the City of Detroit. Attendees of the event enjoy soup and bread generously donated by restaurants around metro Detroit, in addition to tasty cheese and crackers, fruit and desserts donated by local grocers and merchants. While socializing and feasting, attendees wander through tables of hand-painted bowls in search of that one bowl that they want to take home as a reminder that someone’s bowl is always empty.  All of these bowls are generously donated and decorated by members of the community.
