Ending hunger—one bowl at a time!

In collaboration with local businesses, schools, and community groups, our colleges offer Empty Bowls events as a way to garner support and increase awareness for those experiencing homelessness and everyday hunger. 

Patrons may select from a variety of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted ceramic bowls.  All proceeds from Empty Bowls events go directly to community partners, and local charities to provide support for those in need. 

Special gratitude is extended to the wonderful ceramics students who donate their time and talent to help feed the hungry and homeless in our community.
