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 28 Brazos Valley schools have created thousands of handmade, artistic bowls to donate for this event with the purpose of “kids helping kids.”
Each year, The Arts Council of Brazos Valley teams up with local businesses and restaurants to host this fantastic event. Art teachers from all over the Brazos Valley bring their student created bowls to Allen Honda. This year's event will be held on Saturday, February 29th from 11am-1:30pm. Bowls are sold for a $10 donation and each donation will receive a simple (and delicious) bowl of soup and slice of bread, generously donated by participating restaurants, as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community. Choirs, bands and orchestras from a number of the schools will be on hand to provide live musical entertainment.
