Empty Bowls Houston – TBD

May 1

17th Annual Empty Bowls Houston
Due to COVID-19, the 17th annual Empty Bowls Houston event is TBD.
The health and well-being of our volunteers, Craft Center staff, demo artists, sponsors, and guests is our top priority.

Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort by artists and craftspeople in cities and towns across the country to feed the hungry in their communities. Empty Bowls Houston is implemented locally by Houston-area ceramists and artists working in various media, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and the Houston Food Bank.

For a minimum $25 donation, attendees have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists, then receive a simple lunch of soup and bread freshly prepared by the Houston Food Bank. Pottery and woodturning demonstrations and live music will be featured at the event.

The empty bowls serve as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world.

2021 Empty  Bowls Update

Local Foods

Currently, we have a selection of bowls for a minimum $25 donation, attendees have the pleasure of selecting a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Houston area ceramists and craft artists at two Local Foods locations, which have transformed from a restaurant to a market and restaurant.  Currently we have bowls at the Rice Village and Tanglewood location.

Urban Harvest Farmers Market

We are still considering ways to continue to get bowls out to the community, primarily through the Urban Harvest Farmers Market, once the market returns to a more convenient model. As we organize the mini market events throughout the remainder of the year, we will post updates on Empty Bowls social media pages and the Empty Bowls website.
