Local potters are working to bring back Empty Bowls to Albuquerque and
NMPCA is helping to spread the word.
The public is invited to Albuquerque Empty Bowls at St. John’s United Methodist Church at 2626 Arizona St. NE in Albuquerque on Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Handmade bowls made by Albuquerque potters and food donated by area restaurants and food establishments will be provided to reincarnate the popular fundraiser to help alleviate food insecurity in our area. Storehouse New Mexico --a nonprofit community-based food pantry that provides free groceries to people in need-- will benefit from all bowl sales. Tickets are for sale at Storehouse website: https://storehousenm.org $35 includes bowl, soup, bread, dessert, drink. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Albuquerque Empty Bowls, the event, is Albuquerque’s version of the grassroots movement by artists and craftspeople in cities and towns around the world to raise money for food related charities to care for and feed the hungry in their communities (https://emptybowls.com).
