Twelve percent of Cook County residents go hungry every month. To address this need, each year the Art Colony collaborates with this event to help alleviate local hunger needs by donating over 250 bowls to the fundraising lunch and dinner.
In 2020, due to COVID-19, there will not be community make-a-bowl sessions. Area potters will be making and donating bowls for the fundraising portion of this event.
At this time, the Empty Bowls committee continues to make alternate plans for the November event and more details will be forthcoming.
