Empty Bowl started as an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. FP-Verdugos is hosting the fundraiser to continue providing safe shelter, meals and support to homeless families.
The basic premise is simple: independent potters, arts associations and other groups within the community create handcrafted ceramic bowls. Guests who purchase Adult tickets to a simple meal of soup, bread and dessert donated by area restaurants and they take their selected bowl home with them as a symbol of the hunger and uncertainty homeless families face daily.
Empty Bowl 2017 will also feature an arts and crafts sale by local area artists. All money raised will further Family Promise of the Verdugo’s mission of assisting situationally-homeless families.
