Empty Bowls 2022 Date Change Announcement

The 2022 Empty Bowls event will be hosted by the Opelika Parks and Recreation on April 9, 2022 (previously scheduled on February 12, 2022) from 10 am – 2 pm at The Denson Recreation Center.  The cost is $10.00.

Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger that was initially created by The Imagine Render Group in 1991. The basic premise is simple: Local and regional potters, craftspeople and educators work to create hundreds of handcrafted bowls for each Empty Bowls event. Guests are then invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests can keep their bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our communities. 100% of the money raised during each Empty Bowls event is donated to the Food Bank of East Alabama.
