The fourth annual Empty Bowl Hawaii -- a grassroots effort that started in Michigan in the 1990s -- is set for Saturday, April 11. It is presented by the Hawaii Potters' Guild and is a benefit for Hawaii Meals on Wheels.
The Hawaii Potters' Guild, along with artists from The Honolulu Museum of Art School, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, Windward Community College, Hickam Air Force Base, Iolani Potters, Leeward Community College, Makua Alii Potters and high school students from Mid-Pacific Institute and Punahou School, have been holding bowl-making “thow-a-thons” over the past months and have created over 5,000 one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls for the event.
The ceramic bowls will be sold along with a serving of soup donated by local chefs, including Cocina, Mariposa at Neiman Marcus, Highway Inn, Café Laufer, Le Bistro, Murphy's Bar & Grill, Roy's Waikiki, Side Street Inn, Tiki's Grill & Bar, Town, and 12th Avenue Grill. There will also be live music at the event.
For a contribution of $25, or $20 during the advanced ticket sale period, you can enjoy a simple meal of soup and bread, and take home a handmade bowl of your choice.
The Empty Bowl Project is a grassroots effort that started in Michigan in the 1990s and has grown in the United States and internationally to fight hunger.
Neiman Marcus will also generously be hosting an exhibition of Empty Bowl themed artwork to benefit Empty Bowl Hawai‘i 2015 and Hawai'i Meals on Wheels from March 26 through April 12 at the Neiman Marcus Gift Gallery, Third Floor, Ala Moana Center.
