Empty Bowls 2019

Tuesday, November 19, 2019
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM  
The Commons at Pond Park, Downtown Powell

An empty bowl can mean a full stomach. That’s what NWC ceramics instructor Elaine DeBuhr and her students are preparing for Tuesday, Nov. 19, when they host their Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes (PVLF) food bank.

DeBuhr and her students serve a simple meal of soup and bread for $10 and ask guests to keep their empty bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world. All ceramic bowls are hand thrown by DeBuhr and a volunteer group of NWC students and alumni.

The first-come-first-served meal is dished up from 5:30-7 p.m. at The Commons at Pond Park in downtown Powell. NWC ceramics students and Art Club members serve a choice of three soups, including a gluten-free vegetarian option, and fresh bread.

100% of the proceeds go to Powell Valley Loaves and Fishes.
