Empty Bowls 2018
Annual community fundraiser for local programs addressing Cook County's hunger needs. Delicious soup meal and beautiful bowls.
Empty Bowls 2018 features a simple soup dinner with soup and bread provided by local restaurants and a sale of beautiful handcrafted bowls made at the Grand Marais Art Colony. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., with dinner from 5 – 7 p.m.
The Art Colony makes 300 clay and glass bowls for the fundraiser. Community members can participate in a make-a-bowl mini-class. Sessions are held the third week of October. Visit grandmaraisartcolony.org for more details and to register.
Empty Bowls invites individuals and businesses to support the mission of Empty Bowls by sponsoring the event. Pay your sponsorship online at: https://bit.ly/2OLCLv5.
Proceeds from Empty Bowls battle hunger in Cook County by funding community hunger programs. Funds from last year’s Empty Bowls event were distributed to the Cook County Food Shelf, Birch Grove Community Center’s WE Connect, Cook County Youth Agency Coalition, Cook County Public Health and Human Services, local schools, Snacks and Packs, and the Violence Prevention Center to help nourish those in need.
