The Empty Bowls Project is a nationwide movement founded by potters. Together with Sarah Kersten, Emily Reinhardt, Helen Levi and Regina Mandell, we are on a collective mission to raise money for organizations that support the rights of women, minorities, refugees, undocumented immigrants, protestors, the environment, the underrepresented…those who need protection now more than ever.
The week of the presidential inauguration we gather for regional events in New York, Berkeley, Kansas City...and right here in Athens, Georgia on Monday, January 16, 2017. 100% of proceeds from Empty Bowls South will go directly to the Athens Immigrant Rights Coalition and the American Civil Liberties Union.
How does it work? Potters across the country donate bowls, chefs and farmers donate food for a meal, you donate money and enjoy that meal in addition to selecting a beautiful handmade bowl to take home. At the event, each guest will choose a bowl; you will use it to enjoy a dinner made with love at a table of fellow people giving back to those who need it. Then, you take it home as a reminder to do good every day this year.
