WHAT IS IT? Empty Bowls is an international grass roots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise: potters and
other crafts people create handcrafted bowls. Guests arrive for a simple soup meal and choose a unique bowl
which they keep as a symbol and a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE? The purpose is twofold: to raise awareness of the fight against hunger in our
community and to raise funds to support local food banks.
WHO BENEFITS? Proceeds from this event support the efforts of Plateau Outreach Ministries and the Kiwanis
Food Bank to feed those in need on the Enumclaw Plateau.
WHO’S DOING THIS? This project is spearheaded by a committee from organizations that include:
• Enumclaw Mayor Liz Reynolds
• Green River Community College Pottery Department
• Enumclaw Kiwanis
• Enumclaw Rotary Club
• Plateau Outreach Ministries
• Arts Alive! Center For the Arts
• The Enumclaw School District
where can I get a ticket? Tickets will be available at the door. Choose your bowl on a first come, first served basis. 100% of the money raised will go to feed people on the
Enumclaw Plateau. Your participation will help meet a great need in our community.
