Hundreds of people braved the snowstorm and made it out to the 19th Annual Empty Bowls at Rodef Shalom this past Sunday, March 2. Since its beginning, this yearly family-friendly benefit has helped Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Just Harvest raise over half a million dollars to fight hunger in our region.
Despite the seriousness of the cause, the Empty Bowls fundraiser to fight hunger has always been a family-friendly event. This year will be more fun than ever with opportunities for kids – and adults! – to explore their creative side with clay.
On March 2, Just Harvest and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank will co-host the 19th Annual Empty Bowls. Each year, sports and entertainment celebrities donate autographed ceramic bowls for the event’s silent auction. Check out the preliminary list of this year’s celebrity bowls!
We had a great turnout last Friday to the free public bowl-making session at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. PCA generously hosted the event to help support the 19th Annual Empty Bowls.
The annual Empty Bowls dinner is a community meal of soup and bread, reminding us that too many people in our region still have empty bowls. This marks the 19th year that Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Just Harvest will co-host this singular event to fight hunger in the region. Join us!
A police officer, a dentist, business people – all former students of a local ceramics teacher reassembled recently to spend 8 hours together in a creative endeavor to help Just Harvest.
The 19th annual Empty Bowls – a community meal to fight hunger in the region – will be this March. Every year, attendees get to take home a beautiful ceramic bowl. This wouldn’t be possible without the creative help and enthusiasm of local students. Tonight you can see some of them in action.
