Thank you for helping us to raise over $28,000 to fight hunger in the Midsouth!
It works like this: Artisans, educators and others around the Memphis area create handcrafted and hand painted bowls to raise funds to fight hunger. Guests are invited to a delicious, simple dinner of soup and bread donated by local restaurants where they may select one of the beautiful, handcrafted bowls to take home as a reminder of the bowls that go empty in the Memphis area, as well as the inspiring work being done in our community to fight hunger.
The event, which included a silent auction, art sale and live music, was held on Sunday, November 8, 2015.
This year, in
addition to supporting Memphis-area food pantries and the nutrition education
programs of the Church Health Center, the Memphis
Empty Bowls Project will be working with Mid-South Food Bank to create a new Food for Kids BackPack Program at
Perea Preschool, which will be implemented in January 2016.
