The fourth annual Empty Bowls event will be held at Christchurch Grammar School this Sunday 23 June, to help feed the hungry throughout Western Australia.
Local potters have donated more than 700 hand-made bowls and some of Perth’s top restaurants and bakeries have donated delicious soup and bread, together helping raise money for Foodbank WA to provide warm meal this winter.
For a $25 ticket, people can choose a hand-made bowl, fill it with soup and bread and feel good knowing that they are doing their bit to fight hunger in our community.
Organiser Janet Pyke said, “It’s such a wonderful community event that continues to grow in popularity every year. There are so many talented potters here in WA, so it’s a fantastic way to showcase their work, while shining a spotlight on the growing issue of hunger.”
“Thanks to the support of Coast, The Cottesloe Beach Hotel, Jeremy’s Exclusive Butchers, Royal Perth Golf Club, Nolita, Bread in Common, Lawleys Bakery and Barrett’s Bakery and Nolita every dollar we raise will help Foodbank WA provide two meals.’
Greg Hebble, Foodbank WA CEO said, “As the cold weather hits, more and more families will struggle to pay the bills and put food on their table. Empty Bowls will help us better provide for families that have nowhere else to turn.”
Empty Bowls is an initiative that started in Michigan more than 26 years ago where potters raised funds to assist with food relief. Since then Empty Bowl events have been taking place all over the world.
