Hundreds of people from all over Shelby County come together to fight local hunger at the annual Memphis Empty Bowls Project fundraising event.
Proceeds from the fun event will work to increase the serving capacities and nutritional offerings of local food pantries and soup kitchens. Proceeds will also support the ood pantry program at Perea Preschool, a ministry of Church Health, to fight childhood hunger. Since the first event in 2012, Memphis Empty Bowls Project has raised over $100,000 to fight hunger.
CHOOSE: Artisans, educators, and others around the Memphis area donate handcrafted and hand painted bowls to fight hunger. Choose a beautiful bowl 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.
ENJOY: Guests are invited to a delicious, simple dinner of soup (donated by local restaurants) and bread and desserts (donated by Church Health) while listening to live music.
SHOP: Shop the art market. A portion of the proceeds from your purchase from the vendors, who are talented local artists, will go toward the Memphis Empty Bowls' mission.
