Empty Bowls Benefit Hosted by HHS Ceramics Students

Cream colored ceramic bowl with shiny glaze and navy blue detailing, text "Empty Bowls Hastings 2024"

The public is invited to attend Empty Bowls on Wednesday, April 17, at 5:30 pm in the HHS Commons. Guests can choose their bowl and enjoy a light meal from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, followed by a short presentation on hunger in our community and the world.

Empty Bowls events happen worldwide and the premise is simple: guests choose a handmade bowl to use that evening and take home as a reminder that there are always Empty Bowls in the world. The suggested minimum donation is ten dollars in exchange for a meal and the bowl as a keepsake. The proceeds from Empty Bowls will be split between Hastings Family Service and Heifer International. The Empty Bowls goal this year is to raise $4,000 or more!
