Empty Bowls Pizza Party at Ashland Art Center

Empty Bowls Pizza Party at Ashland Art Center on April 8, 2015! Make you bowl to donate to this year's Emty Bowls event in Ashland!

We are grateful for your presence at our< Empty Bowls Pizza Party Wednesday, April 8 at 6 pm Let’s make a difference! Empty Bowls

Twenty-five years ago, an art teacher wanted to organize an event to give artists and art students a way to make a difference in their community. Ceramic bowls were made in his high school art classes and then used as individual serving pieces for a fund-raising meal of soup and bread. Guests chose a bowl to use that day and then to keep as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Since then, the idea has spread throughout the country as a way to support organizations who help feed the hungry. Here in Ashland, the 4th Annual Empty Bowls event will be held on May 8th, with proceeds going to Uncle Foods Diner, Ashland Emergency Food Bank, Food Angels, and Access.
