Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort by artists and crafts people in cities and towns across the country to feed the hungry in their communities. It supports food-related charitable organizations around the world, and has raised millions of dollars to help end hunger. We are excited to expand the fight here in Kansas City with the Kansas City Empty Bowls event presented by Kansas City-area ceramists and artists working in various media.


Join us on November 1, 2019 at 6:00 pm at Arts Tech (1522 Holmes Street) for the 5th annual Kansas City Empty Bowls event.   This event serves as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world. For $25  (in advance online, $30 at the door), attendees have the pleasure of selecting a bowl from hundreds of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted bowls donated by Kansas City area ceramists and craft artists, then receive a simple dinner of soup.


From 6:00 to 7:30 there will be a silent auction. At 6:45 we will begin announcements and end the silent auction at 7:30. Then there will be a live auction of donated art from many of the local artists supporting this event including: LeRoy Grubbs and others to be announced.

The objective is to invite Kansas City to help support Harvesters Food Network.    This is a city wide event supported by the Kansas City Artist Community. Kansas City is a big city with a big heart of Gold.

This is the 29th Anniversary of the Empty Bowls Project on a national level.

The 2019 Kansas City Empty Bowls event serves as a reminder of all the empty bowls in our community and around the world.

If you would like to contribute,  please do here: http://emptybowls.com/donate/ We have buttons and t-shirts too.

100% of the profits from the event will go to Harvesters  and other local charities.
