Thank you to all our Empty Bowl supporters!
Empty Bowl started as an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. FP-Verdugos hosted 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 featured an arts and crafts sale by local area artists. Attendees enjoyed shopping from local crafts people who support the Family Promise mission to help situationally homeless families. Special thanks to all our sponsors, restaurant donors, attendess and Empty Bowl Committee members who made this the most successful Empty Bowl in our history!
