An update message from the Empty Bowls organizers:

The 16th annual Empty Bowls Houston event has been cancelled. The health and well-being of our volunteers, Craft Center staff, demo artists, sponsors, and guests is our top priority.
We are still considering ways to continue to get bowls out there, primarily through the Urban Harvest Farmers Market, once the market returns to a more convenient mode. The customers of the market have always been very interested and supportive of Empty Bowls, and many people have told us they wish we would be there more often.

As we organize the mini market events throughout the remainder of the year, we will post updates on our social media pages and the Empty Bowls website.

Obviously, we had hoped to raise significant money for the Houston Food Bank by this time of year. The Food Bank can certainly use funds, given what it is doing to feed those in need during this difficult time. Here’s to hoping we can still find a way to take advantage of your generosity of spirit for the community and your talents.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns: Sam.L.oldham@gmail.comIf possible, please store your bowls for next year.  If you cannot store them, please let me know and I'll arrange a safe pickup.

See the ClayHouston Calendar for more information on these and other upcoming events!
