Empty Bowls Junior

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.” Due to Covid, this event is more important than ever! With your help, families struggling to meet a basic need can afford food to feed their loved ones.


At Empty Bowls, Jr. you can help end hunger, enjoy a variety of entertainment, and view handmade, artist bowls created by Brazos Valley students and teachers. For every $10 donation, receive a bowl and a cup of delicious soup provided by our amazing restaurant sponsors! All proceeds from this event will benefit local in-school pantries and Art Council Children Programs.

Various colorful, handmade ceramic bowls are displayed on a table with a black tablecloth.
