Empty Bowls Fundraiser this weekend

I'll be attending the 2009 Empty Bowls fundraiser this weekend at the Frame Gallery in downtown Bryan to help raise money for the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

Here's the scoop from organizer Greta Watkins!

When: Saturday, November 14th (11AM - 3PM)
Where: The Frame Gallery (216 North Bryan Avenue in downtown Bryan)
Help us raise money for the Brazos Valley Food Bank!

In return for a donation of at least $15:
  • You may choose one of the ceramic bowls created by local potters and artists
  • Be served a simple meal of soup, bread and water
  • Keep the bowl as a lasting reminder of the ongoing problem of hunger throughout the Brazos Valley.
This year's event will be our 4th! The idea for the event started in Michigan in 1990 by a high school art teacher. Empty Bowl events have taken place all over the country since then. More info:

Many individual potters and artists as well as Joy Pottery, Mudcreek Pottery, U Paint It, Living Water Pottery and Blinn College Fine Arts Department (Bryan) created bowls for this event.

Soup and bread will be donated by Square One Bistro, Village Cafe, Must Be Heaven, Casa Rodriguez and others as well by individuals.

I'll be there as soon as I wrap up at the farmers' market. Hope to see you there!

Tricia - I'm looking forward to it (this will be my first time attending). I contacted the organizer and they still needed bread donations, so I have rolls rising in the kitchen now. Yum!
