Empty Bowls

April 28 - April 28

First Presbyterian Church | 1015 5th Ave

10:30 am - 2:30 pm

Huntington Empty Bowls is a collaboration of many serves that one purpose: to feed many more. All proceeds benefit Facing Hunger Foodbank (www.facinghunger.org), a Huntington-based non-profit that serves nearly 116,000 individuals monthly in 16 counties across West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio.

Peruse hundreds of beautiful pottery pieces—our empty bowls—hand crafted by Marshall University art students and local artisans. Purchase a bowl and speak with Marshall ceramic students while they carefully wrap your purchase for easy transport.

Each bowl purchase also includes one ticket to the soup-kitchen style meal of soup, bread and drink. Luckily, the company is often jovial and the soups delicious, which makes it easier to forget that the modest portions and single-file line aren’t your run-of-the-mill lunch out.

This initiative would be unlikely without the partnerships of Marshall University, Keramos Potters’ Guild, local artisans, Christian Associates, B’nai Sholom Congregation and First Presbyterian Church, and without the donations from more than two dozen local individuals and businesses, yet it would be impossible without you.
