Filling Empty Bowls in Our Community

By Dylan Menguy September 23, 2012

Where in Washington, DC can you get an all-you-can-eat lunch of amazing soups from a broad sweep of restaurants, a handcrafted keepsake bowl made by a local artist, and support the work Capital Area Food Bank, all during your lunch hour?
The answer: Empty Bowls 2012!
Empty Bowls is an exciting event hosted by the Capital Area Food Bank each fall during which artists donate their original, handmade bowls that are then filled with a symbolic meal of soup and bread. Guests purchase the bowls for a suggested minimum donation of $25, which will help the food bank provide 75 meals for our neighbors in need. Guests keep their bowls as beautiful, physical reminders that there are always empty bowls in our community that need to be filled.
If you work in the Dupont Circle area, stop by during your lunch break for a delicious meal and support a great cause!
