Empty Bowls, Jr. began in 2013 as a way to directly support local in-school food pantries and The Arts Council programs. Students and art educators from more than 25 Brazos Valley schools have created hundreds of handmade, artistic bowls to donate for this event with the purpose of “kids helping kids.” Individuals who donate $10 for a bowl will also receive a simple (and delicious) bowl of soup and bread, generously donated by participating Taste of B-CS members and local restaurants, as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community. Together, we can end hunger in the Brazos Valley! So bring your family, friends, and neighbors to this amazing event that helps fund in-school food pantries.
Empty Bowls Jr. 2017 Recap
