Putting an end to hunger with the Capital Area Food Bank's Empty Bowl Project

Eileen visits Springbrook High School to talk about the Empty Bowl Project (ABC7)

The Capital Area Food Bank will host its Empty Bowls events, a cool fusion of pottery and restaurants to raise funds and awareness about local hunger, beginning in October. Eileen is hosting the first event on October 5th. Four Empty Bowls events are returning to the Washington metro area this fall! No matter where you live or work, you can help fill the bowls of our neighbors who are hungry. Here’s how:

The $35 donation to the Capital Area Food Bank from the sale of each ticket provides you with a handmade bowl of your choice, plus unlimited soup, bread and desserts.All proceeds will go to the Capital Area Food Bank, the largest hunger-relief organization serving the Washington metro area. The CAFB feeds 12% of the residents in this area—over 540,000 people–working through 444 food assistance partner non-profits who provide food from the CAFB as they address the root causes of poverty.
