Let the bowls begin!

We're starting to make the bowls for our upcoming fundraiser at the Akron Art Museum on March 21st. Reservations are now open for the Empty Bowl Project. All money collected will be donated to Akron's Good Samaritan Hunger Center to fight hunger.

The making and decorating of over 200 bowls is the fun part with a dozen or
more bowls made at a time. The hand-thrown bowls hold eight to twelve ounces and no two are exactly alike. We've designed a new bowl this year for people to add to their collection.

We've definitely improved over last year with additional and different chefs being added to the mix. Adding a few new restaurants this year helps to keep the event fresh and interesting as different soups are added. Attendees will get to sample THREE soups instead of two. Also new this year is the addition of live music. Check out the participating restaurants below. Only 200 bowls will be made so reserve your bowl online at or 330-376-9185.
