Empty Bowls Virtual Event

Friday, May 15th, 2020
10:00 am – 3:00 pm / online
Empty Bowls Virtual 2020
For the past 16 years, Carleton Ceramics has hosted the annual Empty Bowls community meal on campus to raise awareness around hunger issues and funds for the CAC Food Shelf.  With the covid-19 pandemic and a shelter-in-place order,  that community gathering is just not possible, so Empty Bowls is going virtual for 2020! On Friday, May 15, please use an Empty Bowl from a previous event (or any other bowl!) and post a picture of you and your bowl on your Instagram page and tag @carletonceramics, #carletonceramics. Or post your picture to Facebook and tag the CCCE! 
Consider making a donation  to the CAC Food Shelf or any local organization with a mission to fight hunger anytime during the week of May 11-16 in honor of the virtual event. A $20 donation is suggested, but any amount is much appreciated!  Donate through Venmo @CarletonEmptyBowls, the Community Action Center website, or text EmptyBowls to 44321.

Originally founded in 1990 by Michigan high school teachers Lisa Blackburn and John Hartom to give high school students a chance to impact the local community, the Empty Bowls project has become a prominent national and international movement with local potters, churches, artist organizations and schools. Since its inception in 2005 at Carleton, the project has raised over $91,000 for the CAC food shelf. This event is co-sponsored by Carleton's CCCE and Carleton's Department of Art and Art History.
