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.
