Fight hunger and support local artists at Empty Bowls Houston

HOUSTON – Since its inception, Empty Bowls Houston, an international grassroots effort comprised of local artists, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and the Houston Food Bank, has provided nearly three million meals.

This year, the artists are back to help fight hunger in Houston this weekend. Local artists are donating more than 1,500 hand-crafted ceramic bowls to raise money for the Houston Food Bank.
