Empty Bowls

March - April 2018

The Manhattan Nonviolence Initiative and the Manhattan Arts Center have teamed up to bring back Empty Bowls to Manhattan.
Empty Bowls is a fundraiser to fight hunger in MHK. All proceeds from the event will be donated locally to Common Table. Local artists donate hand-made bowls for the event. Local restaurants donate soup and bread. Community members buy the bowls and enjoy soup. 

Want to get involved?

Come make a bowl during one of our Bowl-Making Days:
  • Tuesday, March 6, 5-8pm
  • Sunday, March 11, 3-6pm
$10 - make your own bowl. Teachers are available in our clay studio to help you craft a bowl for a great cause.

Not feeling creative, but want to get involved?

Starting March 1 at MAC, you can receive an artisan bowl for a donation of $15 or more, More bowls are available at Strecker Nelson West Gallery. You will get a beautiful handmade bowl, a coupon for soup on April 7, and the warm fuzzy feeling of helping the community you live in.
