Empty Bowls - Take a Stand in the
Fight Against Hunger and Homelessness!
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE EMPTY BOWLS IN THE WORLD.
Empty Bowls serves as an educational program about hunger and homelessness and as a local fundraiser for Greensboro Urban Ministries. The idea for Empty Bowls is simple-participants decorate ceramic bowls and purchase the bowl for a good cause. The bowls serve as a reminder that there are always "Empty Bowls" in the world.

Part I: The Creative Prelude!
Volunteer “artists” will put their talents to work decorating 300 ceramic bisque bowls—instructions, guidance, colorful glazes and brushes will be provided.
Monday, January 30 through Friday, February 3, 2012
11:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Elliott University Center Azalea Room and Commons
The bowls will then be fired and made ready for the special event. On April 2nd, members of the university community will have a chance to “purchase” the unique bowls and enjoy a simple meal together to draw attention to world hunger.
Part II: Ongoing education about Hunger and Homelessness
Part III: Fill Your Bowl
Monday, April 2, 2012
10:00 am to 6:00 pm
Choose your bowl and fill it with a special treat in EUC Azalea Room and Auditorium Pre-Function Room
For a minimum donation of $5, you can go to the EUC Cone Ballroom A & B and select a beautiful hand painted soup bowl—which you’ll get to keep—as well as enjoy a piping-hot bowl of soup. While you dine, sponsors of this event will use unique approaches to tell you about projects promoting social justice on the UNCG campus, in Greensboro and in surrounding communities.
