About

Combining community, creativity, and compassion to fight hunger. 

JOIN
 

Hundreds of people from all over Shelby County come together to fight local hunger at the annual Memphis Empty Bowls Project fundraising event. 

CHOOSE

Artisans, educators, and others around the Memphis area donate handcrafted and hand painted bowls to fight hunger. Choose a beautiful bowl to take home as a reminder of the bowls that go empty in the Memphis area, as well as the inspiring work being done in our community to fight hunger.

ENJOY

Guests are invited to a delicious, simple dinner of soup (donated by local restaurants) and bread and desserts (donated by Church Health) while listening to live music.

SHOP

Shop the art market. Proceeds from your purchase will  go toward the Memphis Empty Bowls' mission.

I enjoyed my time volunteering for a good cause. Everyone was so meaningfully involved in helping. I find that all the volunteers and staff in charge have the same amazing productive and intentional mindset. Everyone was working towards the same goal. Thanks you for providing this great volunteer opportunity.
