Empty Bowls is an international movement to involve the pottery community in helping the hungry. The proceeds from the Cincinnati Clay Alliance Empty Bowls events, raised over $350,000 in the last 22 years, benefiting Kids Cafe of the Freestore Foodbank. There are 9 Kids Cafe locations in greater Cincinnati where children receive a nourishing meal, help with homework and personal hygiene, and can participate in fun activities.
Meal tickets ($30) include a handmade bowl, soup, bread, and a dessert. The Clay Alliance members donate the hand made bowls and additionally Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center sponsored a throw-a-thon providing an additional 200 bowls. Additionally, handmade bowls and other ceramic pieces donated by Clay Alliance members can be purchased at the event.
Arnold’s Bar and Grill will be providing servers and donating the delicious soup and bread.
