Empty Bowl Project Benefits Meals for Kids

December 17, 2019

Hundreds of Central Texans slurped soup and raised money for a couple of worthy causes at the 23rd annual Austin Empty Bowl Project.

The event, which is always held the Sunday before Thanksgiving, benefits our Meals for Kids program as well as the Central Texas Food Bank’s Kids Café, and it features the work of local potters who donate bowls of every shape, size, and color to the cause

For a $25 donation, participants pick out a bowl and fill it with soup furnished by several local restaurants.

Since 2012, The Empty Bowl Project has raised nearly $300,000 for Meals for Kids, which provides nutritious, kid-friendly snacks to children of low-income families.
