Combining Community, Creativity, and Compassion
Hundreds of people from all over Shelby County come together to fight local hunger at the annual Memphis Empty Bowls Project fundraising event.
Artisans, educators, and others around the Memphis area donate handcrafted and hand painted bowls to fight hunger. Choose a beautiful bowl to take home as a reminder of the bowls that go empty in the Memphis area, as well as the inspiring work being done in our community to fight hunger.
Guests are invited to a delicious, simple dinner of soup (donated by local restaurants) and bread and desserts (donated by Church Health) while listening to live music.
Shop the art market. A portion of the proceeds from your purchase from the vendors, who are talented local artists, will go toward the Memphis Empty Bowls' mission.
"My faith demands
that I do whatever I can,
wherever I am,
whenever I can,
for as long as I can
with whatever I have
to try to make a difference."
In addition to our Adopt-A-School program with Willow Oaks Elementary School, each month we select a local, grassroots organization to partner with in reaching out to members of our community who have needs we are able to contribute to. We reach out to each organization to find out their specific needs and collect items throughout the month to be delivered to them the first Tuesday of the following month.
Please click on the links below to learn more about these organizations and watch this page for the specific projects and activities we have planned for them.
