“Empty Bowls began as a small fundraising project that has now grown into a worldwide fundraising event. In 1990, a group of Michigan high school students, along with their art teacher, began actively searching for a unique way to help end hunger. After many ideas, they settled on a fundraiser where people of all kinds would be able to enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread served in a decorative ceramic bowl. Guests of the event were asked to keep the bowl as a reminder of those who suffer from hunger. Empty Bowls events are now held all over the world and have raised millions of dollars toward the fight against hunger.
“Empty Bowls is unique in that it does not have headquarters, directors, or guidelines. Each city’s event is a unique experience unmatched by any other. The Dallas chapter of Empty Bowls was started up by John Williams, potter and former owner of Trinity Ceramic Supply Inc., and his wife Darlene Williams. Thanks to the hard work of John, Darlene, and everyone involved, Empty Bowls has grown into a successful event in the heart of Dallas. Dallas’ Empty Bowls has benefitted countless North Texans in need, providing 2.5 million meals over the last twelve years!”
