1 in 10 Cook County residents struggle with food insecurity, meaning at some time each month, they don’t know where their next meal will come from. The annual Empty Bowls fundraiser event highlights the pervasiveness of hunger in Cook County while actively working to solve this community problem.

Empty Bowls 2016 features a simple soup dinner with soup and bread provided by local restaurants and a beautiful array of handcrafted bowls made at the Grand Marais Art Colony Make-A-Bowls sessions by community members and potters. This year only, the event also features wooden bowls made by North House Folk School intern Sam Gathje. (See attached article for more information.) A silent auction – made possible through the generous donations of local businesses - offers a large selection of gift certificates perfect for holiday, wedding, or birthday gifts. The bake sale provides sweet treats to enjoy at the event or to take home or to the office.

Empty Bowls in Cook County started in 2006 and is currently coordinated by community volunteers in collaboration with the Grand Marais Art Colony, KIDS Plus, and the generous donations of local businesses. Approximately 75 volunteers are needed on the day of the event to assist with setting up, serving, and various other tasks. If interested in volunteering, please contact Pat Campanaro at 651-336-2964 or
