We are Empty Bowls Attleboro Area
Empty Bowls is an international project started several decades ago by potters and ceramic artists who create handmade bowls, solicit food and other support, and host a community meal. Attending guests, who pay to share in the meal, choose a bowl to keep as a reminder of their support of helping to fill the many empty bowls in their neighborhood and the world.
All of the proceeds go directly to alleviating hunger.
Empty Bowls events now support food-related charities around the world and have raised millions of dollars to fight against hunger. They strengthen communities, support local artists by celebrating beautiful pottery, and educate people about hunger and poverty.
Empty Bowls Attleboro was founded by Sarah Mott, Sally Cobb, Martha Machnik, Darlene Blazejewski, and David Laferriere. Our team now includes an amazing group of local potters and friends who have come together to create and glaze bowls for our annual event.
We host the event in September, at the Newell Shelter in Capron Park, Attleboro, and look forward to contributing to our local area organizations, The Attleboro Y, Food n’ Friends, the Hebron Food Pantry, and Murray Unitarian Universalist Food Pantry whose work directly aids those neighbors of ours who lack food security.
